PROSECUTORS GET ACCESS TO MEDICAL RECORDS

A Monroe County judge will allow prosecutors to see the medical records of a man who is charged with running down a Rochester police officer during an epileptic seizure.

Monroe County Court Judge William H. Bristol ruled Friday that Edward Jones waived his right to confidentiality when hesigned an agreement allowing police to retrieve his records.

Jones, 41, of Rochester, gave permission to investigators when they questioned him Tuesday after he lost control of his car and critically injured Officer Scott McLaughlin.

McLaughlin, 36, remained in guarded condition Saturday, according to hospital officials.

Police charged Jones with assault, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and four traffic infractions. Jones allegedly admitted that he hadn't been taking medication to control his seizures.
