A man accused in a fatal hit-and-run crash is among three suspects incarcerated on pending criminal charges in Putnam released under new criminal justice reforms that took effect on Wednesday, Jan. 1, County Sheriff Robert L. Langley Jr. said.
Among those released was 40-year-old Javier Lorenzano-Fercano, who was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal automobile accident, a Class D felony.
It is alleged that on Oct. 25, 2019, Lorenzano-Fercano was driving in the Town of Philipstown when he struck and killed a 38-year-old man and then fled the area without reporting the incident. He was arrested the next day in Dutchess County. When Lorenzano-Mercano was released, Immigration officials took him into custody on an ICE detainer.
Also released under the new criminal justice reforms were 50-year-old Suffolk County resident James McInerney who is charged with second-degree grand larceny, a Class C felony, and 28-year-old Brooklyn resident Dusean Davis, who is charged with first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a Class C felony.
