Court escapee’s wife arraigned on hindering charge

LOCKPORT — The wife of a convicted child molester, who helped her husband flee prosecution in Niagara County Court earlier this year, was jailed Tuesday.

Diane G. Turley, 51, 2 Cleveland Ave., Lilydale, was arraigned on a charge of second-degree hindering prosecution Tuesday morning.

 
City Judge William Watson ordered Turley jailed in lieu of $10,000 bail. Turley is returning to court this morning for a determination whether the Niagara County Public Defender’s office will provide her with legal representation.

 
She is accused of helping her husband, Paul Turley, skip town in mid-January, when he was being tried on allegations he’d sexually abused two young girls in the mid- to late 1990s, in North Tonawanda. A Niagara County jury found him guilty after he fled.

 
U.S. Marshals located the Turleys in Tuscon, Ariz., a month later.

 
Paul Turley is jailed without bail ahead of his scheduled May 10 sentencing on the sex charges.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
