Grand jury accuses man of misdemeanor obstruction of government administration, resisting arrest

posted by Billie Owens in batavia, crime.

Today the Genesee County Grand Jury, under what is known as Prosecutor's Information, filed two Class A misdemeanor counts against Michael V. Pontillo. This option is used when the grand jury fails to find evidence to support felony charges but does find sufficient evidence to file misdemeanor charges.

The grand jury accuses Pontillo of obstructing governmental administration in the second degree for allegedly intentionally obstructing, impairing or perverting the administration of law or other governmental function, or attempting to prevent a public servant from performing an official function by means of intimidation, physical force or by unlawful act. This allegedly occurred Oct. 30 in the City of Batavia.

In count two, Pontillo is accused of resisting arrest by intentionally preventing or attempting to prevent a police officer from effecting an authorized arrest of himself or another person.

As a result of the Prosecutor's Information, an infrequent determination in Genesee County, the grand jury directs the District Attorney's Office to return the charges to a lower court, in this case City Court.
