VICTOR, N.Y. (WHEC) — State Assemblyman Brian Kolb’s (R-131) DWI case is scheduled to resume next month.

The former Assembly minority leader was arrested and charged with DWI on New Year’s Eve, but his case was at a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Yates County District Attorney Todd Casella, the special prosecutor in the case, told The Finger Lakes Times motions will be argued on Sept. 10, and pretrial hearings will be scheduled on the same date.

Kolb was driving his state-issued SUV when he was arrested. He crashed it into the ditch near his home.

He agreed to pay for the damages to the vehicle personally.

At the time of his arrest, he had a BAC of .16%, double the legal limit.

He announced in February that he will not seek re-election.
