Judge drops charges against Marchionda

PENN YAN—Acting Yates County Judge Dennis Bender has dismissed a criminal indictment against former Penn Yan Mayor Doug Marchionda Jr. in court, Friday, April 15.
Chief Court Clerk Margaret D. DiMartino confirmed charges were dropped because they fall under tax law, and not penal law. In May of 2010, Marchionda was charged with one count of first degree offering a false instrument for filing, fourth-degree grand larceny, and first-degree falsifying business records. The first two counts are E felonies and the third is a misdemeanor. The charges stem from an allegation Marchionda paid less than the actual amount for a used motor home in 2005.
Marchionda was accused of submitting documents to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicle that stated the sale price was $10,000 and the amount of sales tax paid was $800. The actual purchase price was $33,000. The amount of sales tax due on that amount was more than $2,640.
Marchionda pled not guilty in county court, Jan. 7, 2011. A special prosecutor from Steuben County was named to handle the case.
