Roscoe woman arrested under Leandra’s Law


June 25, 2014

ROSCOE, NY — New York State Police came upon a 1998 Lincoln Town Car that had landed in a ditch on Tennanah Lake Road on June 22. The driver, 53-year-old Anne Slowey of Roscoe told police that while she was driving, she turned to reprimand her two juvenile children, seated in the rear, and she veered off the roadway.

Slowey had a friend come to the scene to drive the children home. Upon further interview, troopers observed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Slowey’s breath. Field sobriety tests were administered and she failed. Slowey was processed at the Liberty State Police barracks and yielded a breath sample of .17% blood alcohol content (BAC). The legal threshold for DWI in New York State is .08% BAC.

Slowey was charged with two counts of Aggravated DWI, and under Leandra’s Law, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and multiple traffic violations. Slowey was arraigned and is to appear in the Town of Fremont court on August 14. Child Protective Services was contacted and are also investigating the case.
