LITTLE VALLEY – Ronald J. Kuhaneck Sr. pleaded guilty before Cattaraugus County Judge Ronald D. Ploetz last week to drunk driving charges from Olean and Salamanca.

Kuhaneck, 50, of Buffalo pleaded guilty to felony charges of driving while intoxicated and third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance when he was arrested in Olean last July 30, said District Attorney Lori Pettit Rieman. He had a blood-alcohol level that day of 0.11 percent.

Kuhaneck was arrested again on Oct. 15 for drunken driving in Salamanca, when he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.17 percent. He pleaded guilty to a felony count of driving while intoxicated for that arrest also. Sentencing is Sept. 11.

Also last week before Judge Ploetz:

Maurienne Jimerson, 37, of Salamanca pleaded guilty to second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and felony driving while intoxicated in Salamanca last Dec. 11 when her driver's license was suspended. She had a blood-alcohol level that day of 0.36 percent, more than four times the state's legal limit and will be sentenced Sept. 11.

Michael E. Fraylon Jr., 25, of Hartford, Conn., was ordered to serve eight months in the county jail on his felony conviction for second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and second-degree criminal impersonation for a forged credit card incident in Randolph on Feb. 15.

Jay D. Stafford, 27, of Salamanca was placed on probation for five years on his felony conviction for driving while intoxicated and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle for his arrest in the Town of New Albion last July 4. At the time he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.13 percent, nearly twice the state's legal limit, and his driver's license had already been suspended due to an earlier incident.

Douglas J. Mosher, 34, of Allegany waived grand jury action and pleaded guilty as charged to first-degree criminal contempt for violating an Allegany Town Court order of protection on March 16. He faces sentencing Sept. 11.
