Two Thruway vehicular crime cases go before Albany judge

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Two Vehicular Crimes Unit felony cases went before the Court in Albany County on Thursday.

In November 2015, the Albany County District Attorney’s Office says Jennifer Bradshaw, 30, of Schenectady, N.Y., was stopped by the New York State Police for unsafely backing out of an EZ-Pass lane on I-90 in Guilderland. During the time of traffic stop, Bradshaw is accused of operating her vehicle while intoxicated.

Bradshaw pleaded guilty to the entire indictment on the charges of one count of driving while intoxicated and driving Per Se, one count of driving whole intoxicated, and one count of reckless driving.

She was ordered to serve 60 days of community service and five years felony probation. She was also ordered to serve 30 days in the Albany County Jail to be served on weekends.

In a separate case, Connor Carroll, 32, of Orleans, Mass., was arrested after police say he had drugs inside his vehicle.

In May 2016, police made a welfare check on a vehicle on the shoulder of the New York State Thruway in the Town of Coeymans.

After searching the vehicle, Carroll is accused of having a small quantity of heroin, assorted pills, and three grams of cocaine. Police say Carroll showed physical signs of impairment and later tests confirmed he was operating the vehicle under the influence of drugs.

Carroll faces six months in Albany County Jail, five years of felony probation, a $1,000 fine, and a minimum one year license revocation. He is scheduled to be sentenced at the end of August.
