Prattsville's O'Hara sentenced to one year probation

Dec 09, 2022 1:01 pm

WNYT reports that former Prattsville Town Supervisor Kory O’Hara was sentenced Dec. 8 to one year of probation and a $25,00 fine and restitution for wire fraud. O'Hara pleaded guilty in July to the scheme to get grant money for work that was not done in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene. O'Hara admitted to obtaining false invoices from a home business, claiming to show work done on his automotive garage and service station, when the work was not done by that company and O'Hara kept the money. O'Hara's lawyer recently asked the judge in the case for just probation, saying the publicity of the case was punishment enough. “The local press has caused him to lose customers and affected his reputation in Prattsville," O’Hara’s attorney Lauren Owens said. "O’Hara has been adequately deterred from any future criminal conduct and there is no need to protect the public from any future crimes by Mr. O’Hara."
