District Attorney Frank A. Sedita, III announces that 23 year-old Charles Pellis of Oswego, NY will be arraigned at 9:30 a.m. before State Supreme Court Justice Christopher J. Burns on an indictment charging him with Bail Jumping in the Second Degree.
It is alleged that on April 29, 2014, while Pellis was released on bail for a separate indictment charging Robbery in the Second Degree, he failed to appear for Court. On July 2, 2014, Pellis was apprehended in Dallas, Texas and later returned to Erie County. On March 19, 2015 Pellis was convicted of Robbery in the Second Degree in connection with the robbery that left a 15 year old victim unconscious. Pellis’ sentencing is on April 23, 2015 for that conviction.
If convicted of this Bail Jumping, Pellis faces up to four years in prison, consecutive to any sentence imposed on the robbery.
Like all defendants accused of a crime, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
