BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Erie County Comptroller's Chief of Staff was in court Tuesday to answer to a drunk driving charge.
Jeffery Bochiecho, Chief of Staff for Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw, was arrested in early October. According to State Police, he was stopped by a trooper for failing to dim his headlights on Route 242 in the Town of Machias. Bochiecho was then arrested and charged with DWI for driving with a .13 percent BAC.
Bochieco had a bench trial in Machias Town Court Tuesday and was found guilty. When he is sentenced April 3, he faces one year in jail, a $1,000 fine, and three years probation. Bochieco could be sentenced to any combination of those penalties by the judge.
