The case of a former Oneida County legislator accused of hiding out of state to avoid several DWI-related charges was postponed one more time Tuesday morning.
Edward Revere, 47, appeared in court with a Syracuse attorney, Ralph Habib, but the attorney told Judge Barry M. Donalty that he had not yet been formally retained on these most current matters.
Donalty gave Revere until next Tuesday to hire the attorney, and that’s when Revere will be back in court to answer charges that have been pending since 2005 and 2008.
Revere, who represented parts of New Hartford and nearby towns in the late 1990s, was brought to court this week on two warrants for violating his probation on a 2005 felony DWI conviction and for failing to appear in court on another felony DWI charge in 2008.
Revere had been living in Georgia when U.S. marshals finally caught up with him last month.
