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.

A North Syracuse man who killed another driver in a drunken crash last fall was sentenced on Wednesday morning.
Harry McLeod, 59, who pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter, will spend the next four to 12 years in prison.
McLeod was driving along Route 11 in the town of Salina without his lights on. When Edward Warner turned left into a Delta Sonic location, his car collided with McLeod’s.
Warner died as a result of injuries he sustained in the accident.
McLeod expressed remorse during his sentencing, but Warner’s son said his apology was difficult to accept.

A Syracuse woman was sentenced today to the maximum penalty of 2 1/3 to seven years in state prison for causing the death of a pedestrian in a DWI crash.
Speaking through an interpreter, Te Sa apologized in court.
But the family of victim Anna Russo Young said the apology carried no weight with them or did anything to lessen their pain.
Sa, 42, of 921 N. Townsend St., pleaded guilty last month to felony, second-degree vehicular manslaughter in Russo’s death.
Authorities said Sa was driving drunk March 14 when she drove into a parked car in the 600 block of East Division Street. She then backed across the street and struck Young on the sidewalk in front of her home. Young, 41, of 634 E. Division St., was crushed between Sa’s car and a cement wall.

A Syracuse doctor offered no explanation or apology as he was sentenced today for driving drunk and running down a pedestrian along Onondaga Lake Parkway last summer.
Dr. Frank Vogel responded with a blunt, “No” when asked if he had anything to say.
Senior Assistant District Attorney Chris Bednarski said that seemed to be consistent with an apparent lack of contrition on the part of Vogel throughout the case.
Onondaga County Judge Anthony Aloi then went forward and sentenced Vogel to five years’ probation with the first six months to be served in the Onondaga County Correctional Facility in Jamesville.
