Trespasser due back in court

Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
(June 1, 2006)

Adam Durand, the Rochester man who was convicted last month of trespassing at Wegmans Wayne County egg farm in 2004 while filming conditions at the farm, will be back in court next week.

Durand is in the Wayne County Jail, serving a six-month sentence imposed May 16. He also was sentenced to $1,500 in fines, community service and a year of probation.

However, under state law, Durand cannot be required to serve both jail time and probation for his crimes.

The sentence received national attention, particularly among animal rights groups.

Wayne County District Attorney Richard Healy said Wednesday that he does not plan to make any sentencing recommendations when Durand returns to court Tuesday. Judge Dennis Kehoe will likely either vacate the jail time or the probation, Healy said.
