Let the Games Begin ... In true Anne Adams fashion she will buck, scream, hollar yell and throw her hair back in a fit of rage. She doesn't have it in her to just take responsibility and accept the fact that she was wrong. Instead it appears she would rather bring all of this negative publicity to herself, a judge, a lieutenant and a doctor. Her mentality appears to be that "if she's going to go down she aint going down alone"!

Bad enough, the car was weaving all over the highway, and bad enough, she could not stand on one leg for a few seconds in the sobriety test. Fortunately, the police apprehended this dangerous and potentially lethal driver and probably saved some lives of other motorists and pedestrians. I find it shocking that an attorney would claim that chewing gum was the cause of the extremely high alcohol blood content, and that a judge would emphasize that she had been drinking "water with lime."

Former county prosecutor pleads not guilty of DWI

On Tuesday, Sept. 2 Town of Hamburg Police received a call that a vehicle was weaving along a road in the town.

Police pulled over the vehicle and later charged Anne E. Adams, 46, of Angola with driving while intoxicated and failure to stay in lane.

Adams, who is a former Erie County prosecutor, fully cooperated with the officer and submitted to a breath test, police said.

She appeared at Hamburg Town Court before Justice Gerald Gorman on Thursday, Sept. 18 and plead not guilty to DWI and her attorney made a motion to have the charges dismissed, based on three character witnesses who said she was not drunk that night.

She was scheduled to reappear at Hamburg Court on Thursday, Oct. 2.

Does anyone know how she made out today in court? It must have been quite a scene, I wonder which little ridiculous outfit she wore to court today?

It was noted in court that she had brought in a wooden leg to stand on and the lawyer was a side show midget from the Hamburg fair that got his license to practice out of a Cracker Jacks box. The three character witnesses were Moe, Larry, and Curly, successfully arguing the wooden leg ought to have been enough to convince any cop in that hick town. She also argued that she had a "four on the floor", and a fifth under the seat. She was sentenced to serve on the school board and the board of trustees for the city for a period not to exceed three years.
