New Hartford, NY (WIBX) - New Hartford police arrested a local woman under the recently enacted “Leandra’s Law.” The law stipulates that anyone caught operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, and having a passenger under the age of 16 on board, be charged with a felony. And, 46-year-old Katherine S. Cady of New Hartford is facing such a felony, after officials say they spotted her car in a ditch off of Kellogg Road near the Hannaford Plaza in Washington Mills.

Police determined that Cady was intoxicated at the time she was exiting the Hannaford Plaza. They also learned that she had a passenger under the age of 16 when the accident occurred. Cady was charged with one Felony count of Aggravated DWI, one misdemeanor count of Driving While Intoxicated, and one misdemeanor count of aggravated DWI. She’s also being charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say Cady’s Blood Alcohol Content was higher than .18 percent. She was arraigned in the Town of New Hartford Court and sent to Oneida County Jail with bail set at $2,000.

The law is named in memory of 11-year-old Leandra Rosado, who was killed when an SUV she and seven other children were riding in crashed on the Henry Hudson Parkway in Manhattan in October 2009. Leandra was the only person to die in the crash.
