It was a hard fought election battle for Yates County District Attorney between incumbent Valerie Gardner and Todd Casella, with the challenger ultimately pulling away with the victory Tuesday. We spoke with Casella Wednesday about his win.
Casella talked to us about what is next for him.
Casella has been a Steuben County prosecutor for less than five years. He says during that time he has handled more than 4-THOUSAND cases, including more than 6-HUNDRED felonies and taken more than 40 cases to trial in the courtroom. Gardner will continue to serve as DA thru the end of the year.
