Police say driver was drinking and using phone

A New York woman was handed several criminal charges after she was involved in a one-car accident in Canandaigua on Nov. 15. Police say that the 22-year-old woman crashed her car in a parking lot on Lakeshore Drive at about 11:10 p.m. After police were called to the scene of the accident, they found the woman inside of her vehicle and allegedly determined that she was under the influence of alcohol.

In a New York federal courtroom on Nov. 4, a man was sentenced to four years in prison after admitting that he had defrauded numerous people out of $38 million.

The defendant, who had previously worked as an investment banker, could have been sentenced to 16 years in prison.
