Justice Court

James Lawrence, 33, of Greenport, previously arrested and convicted of public lewdness, has been indicted by a Suffolk County grand jury on charges of second-degree burglary and public lewdness. The charges stem from an April 5 incident in which Southold Police said Mr. Lawrence broke into a house on Main Street and exposed himself through a window to two girls, ages 11 and 15, who were in a house across the street. He gained the girls’ attention by whistling and throwing pebbles at their window, police said.

Mr. Lawrence served jail time last year for several counts of public lewdness.

Judge Rudolph Bruer, in Southold Justice Court Friday, dismissed the latest local charges because of the county indictment. Mr. Lawrence’s case now will go to criminal court in Riverhead.

* Robert Detrick Jr., 20, of Southold was sentenced to six months at the Suffolk County Correctional Facility, with the sentence to run concurrently with one from a previous unrelated case, after he pleaded guilty in justice court Friday to aggravated driving while intoxicated. His driving privileges were revoked for one year and Judge Bruer fined him $400.

The court session dealt with 65 cases.

* Monica Raynor, 37, of Mattituck was indicted by a Suffolk County grand jury on a charge of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. She faces a later court date in criminal court in Riverhead.

* Ronald Willcoxon, 39, of Westhampton had local charges of second degree criminal trespass and petit larceny dismissed because he was indicted by a Suffolk County grand jury. He will be scheduled for a future date in criminal court in Riverhead.

* Damian Ramirez-Perez, 23, of Mattituck pleaded guilty to aggravated DWI and was placed on probation for three years. Judge Bruer revoked his license for a year and fined him $1,400.

* Perry Cohen, 53, of Middle Island was indicted by a Suffolk County grand jury on a DWI charge, resulting in the local charge being dropped. Mr. Cohen will face a future court date in criminal court in Riverhead.

* John Kirchner, 55, of Peconic received a conditional discharge for one year on two counts of third-degree burglary, two counts of petit larceny and possession of burglary tools. He was fined $205. If he complies with unspecified court orders and his record remains clean, the charges will be eliminated in a year.

* Melanie Norden, 63, of Greenport was granted an adjournment for six months in contemplation of dismissing a charge of leaving the scene of an accident.

* Judge Bruer dismissed a charge of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated on drugs against Jacob Goldfarb, 21, of Southampton.
