CANTON — A Madrid woman was sentenced to jail Monday in St. Lawrence County Court as a result of her May 2 arrest that involved her crashing her vehicle into a police car while fleeing the scene of a crime.

Erin J. White, 27, of 2084 Route 310, was sentenced to six months in jail and five years’ probation by St. Lawrence County Judge Jerome J. Richards for second-degree assault and third-degree criminal mischief convictions.

Troopers said White struck her husband with a baseball bat at 110 Daley Ridge Road and then fled the scene. Police said a U.S. Border Patrol agent located her in her vehicle at 1988 state Route 310.

Police said White refused to comply with orders to turn her vehicle off made by the Border Patrol agent and a state trooper. A Massena Village Police investigator stopped at the scene and attempted to enter the passenger side of the vehicle, and White reportedly then put her vehicle in reverse and slammed into the front of the state police patrol vehicle.

As she was attempting to put the vehicle back into drive, a Border Patrol agent was able to use a Taser on White, and she was taken into custody by police.

White originally was released from county jail on probation May 25 but has been arrested on multiple occasions since that release, including the following day, when she was charged by state police with petit larceny and criminal contempt.

In addition to jail time and probation, Judge Richards ordered her to pay $375 in court fines, fees and surcharges and $4,442.61 in restitution.

She originally was facing two counts of second-degree burglary, four counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property worth more than $1,000 and four counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, all felonies.

Peterkin was arraigned previously on the same charges, but they were dismissed Oct. 7 when Judge Richards determined that the testimony to a grand jury by Ogdensburg Police Narcotics Enforcement Detective Daniel C.
