Amherst man charged with aggravated DWI in Leandra’s Law case

Alexander Pinilla, 35, posted a blood-alcohol level of .27 percent – more than three times the legal limit – after being pulled over shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday on Lake Road, deputies said.

Pinilla, who also was charged three counts of endangering a child, was remanded to Niagara County Jail in lieu of $750 bail. Child Protective Services was summoned to the scene, deputies said.

Authorities said they were tipped off by a cellphone caller. Pinilla is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Town of Wilson Court.
