Norfolk woman ordered to make restitution for bad checks passed at AmVets Post 4, Charlie’s


MASSENA - A Massena woman charged with writing several bad checks at the Massena Amvets post and the former Charlie’s Tavern has been ordered to make restitution of $574.20.

Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson also fined Tammy L. Wray, 38, of 117 River Road, Norfolk, $100, ordered her to pay $50 to submit a sample of her DNA to the state database and placed her under a one-year conditional discharge for her issuing a bad check conviction.

She was charged by village police with writing checks for $50 and $30 to Charlie’s Tavern on Nov. 30, 2012 on a closed account.

Wray had also been charged with writing checks on a closed account for $50 on Oct. 22, 2012, $150 on Oct. 23, 2012, $75 on Oct. 25, 2012 and $100 on Oct. 25, 2012 at Amvets Post 4.

In recent court action before Judge Gustafson:

Ÿ Chantel Courson-Villnave, 23, of 14 Bishop Ave., was ordered to pay a $125 surcharge and abide by the terms of a no harassment order of protection after pleading guilty to second-degree harassment in a plea bargain agreement that satisfied a third-degree assault charge.

Courson-Villnave had been charged with third-degree assault following an incident at 1:47 a.m. April 29, 2012 at the Delmar Tavern. Courson-Villnave reportedly struck Kirsten Jandreau in the face during the altercation. Jandreau was treated at Massena Memorial Hospital for injuries she reportedly suffered in the incident. Ms. Jandreau told police she believed Courson-Villnave was upset with her for her alleged involvement with Courson-Villnave’s ex-boyfriend, according to court papers.

Ÿ Sarah J. Gauthier, 27, of 2 Willow St., Apt. 204, Massena, had two unlawful possession of marijuana counts that were on the trial calendar dismissed. She had been charged with unlawful possession of marijuana on July 30 and again on March 2.
