Ogdensburg man sentenced to 120 days in SLC jail


CANTON — An Ogdensburg man accused of forging and cashing 17 checks belonging to his father in 2009 was sentenced Thursday in St. Lawrence County Court to 120 days in St. Lawrence County jail.

Mark A. Ramsey, 21, of 707 E. South St., also was ordered to pay $2,002.20 in restitution and sentenced to five years’ probation by Judge Jerome J. Richards.

Mr. Ramsey, who was convicted of felony second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, allegedly wrote 17 checks in October 2009 and collected a total of $1,800 from the North Country Savings Bank account of Alan P. Recore, his father.

In other St. Lawrence County Court cases Thursday:

Ryan A. Boyce, 29, Waddington, pleaded guilty to felony aggravated driving while intoxicated.

Mr. Boyce tested a 0.18 percent blood alcohol content after being stopped Dec. 24 in the village of Potsdam. Under state law, a BAC of 0.08 percent or more is considered proof of intoxication. Aggravated DWI is charged when the BAC is 0.18 percent or more.

Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 19.

Randy E. Dewey II, 26, of 511 Grove St., Ogdensburg, had his interim probation extended through March 4, when he will be sentenced.

Mr. Dewey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DWI, petit larceny and misdemeanor third-degree unlawfully fleeing police on April 31, 2011.

In late March 2010, he allegedly stole a pickup truck left running in the parking lot of Nice N Easy on New York Avenue in Ogdensburg.

He crashed the car while traveling on New York Avenue, then bolted from the pickup, but police were able to catch him a short time later. He registered a BAC of 0.20 percent.
