SLDN News Briefs

JAMES SAUER'S FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES — including those with Mercy Flight, members of the New York State Police and first responders from various departments along with the Patriot Guard Riders — filed into the Open Door Baptist Church Monday afternoon to remember him and pay their final respects. They gathered outside the church afterward, as the American flag that had been draped over his casket was presented to his family, there was a gun salute and taps was played. Services were held for Sauer, 60, who, along with Bell Helicopter Flight Instructor Stewart M. Dietrick, 60, of Prosper, Texas, was killed April 26 when the helicopter they were flying in during a training exercise crashed off of Norton Road in Elba.     --By BRIAN QUINN, bquinn@batavianews.com

STEPHEN M. SMITH, 33, of Pleasant Street in Le Roy was charged with failure to register an address change and jailed April 15. Police said the charge was a felony because he had been convicted of the same charge in 2016. Smith was originally convicted in 2011 for having sex with a 15-year-old girl in Le Roy, according to the state’s sex offender registry. He was sentenced to six months in jail and 10 years of probation.

DARIEN — Charges are pending after a one-car accident which injured three people, Genesee County sheriff’s deputies said. Michael J.

Captain, 34, of Darien was flown to Erie County Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Antonucci and Shawn M. Kwiatek, 43, of Darien were taken by Mercy EMS to ECMC. Their injuries were also described as non-life threatening. The accident’s cause remains under investigation.
