Q&A with Onondaga County Sheriff Gene Conway

In this year’s midterm elections, Onondaga County had to elect a new sheriff after Kevin Walsh announced his retirement from the position he held for 20 years. In a competitive race between Republican Gene Conway and Democrat Toby Shelley, Conway won the race by a margin of 8,000 votes. Conway, who was chief of police for the town of DeWitt when he was elected, was sworn-in as sheriff on Dec. 17 at DeWitt Town Hall. Eagle Newspapers reporter Hayleigh Gowans got the chance to interview Conway shortly before he takes office at midnight on Dec. 31.

State increases penalties for repeat drunk driving

Michael Iannettoni had been charged with driving while intoxicated five times when he killed Vincent Russo. Iannettoni had four previous convictions for DWI and was awaiting sentencing on a fifth when he struck Russo’s car on Buckley Road in Liverpool on Jan. 9, 2011. Russo, 82, of Liverpool, was on his way to Mass. Iannettoni was drunk. Russo died three days later. Iannettoni was convicted of aggravated vehicular homicide, first- and second-degree vehicular manslaughter, reckless driving, crossing a double solid line and failure to keep right. He was sentenced to eight and a third to 25 years in prison. But for Russo’s family, it wasn’t enough; they believed he never should have been on the road that night in the first place, given his dangerous history. With the help of State Sen. John DeFrancisco, the Russo family pushed forward a law that would increase penalties for those with repeat drunk driving offenses.
