Kabot's court date is pushed back to December

Nov 4, 2009 10:11 AM

Southampton Town Supervisor Linda Kabot, who lost her bid for reelection on Tuesday, did not get her wish to hold her DWI trial before the general election.

On Thursday, October 29, Riverhead Town Judge Allen Smith pushed back the trial date for Ms. Kabot’s DWI charge to December 10 because her attorney, William Keahon, has other court obligations that take precedent.

Mr. Keahon is still taking testimony for another criminal case in Suffolk County Court in Riverhead. About two weeks ago, he was directed to start a trial in county court, which takes precedence over town court, Mr. Keahon explained after Ms. Kabot’s brief appearance before Judge Smith. Mr. Keahon said he thought that his other case would be finished before Ms. Kabot’s appearance on Thursday morning.

“I appreciate the courtesy,” Mr. Keahon told Judge Smith after being granted the delay.

Assistant District Attorney Anthony Baron agreed to push back the court case to December 10 but noted that the “people were ready to proceed today.”

Both Mr. Keahon and Ms. Kabot said they wanted to start Ms. Kabot’s DWI on October 29 so the matter would be resolved before yesterday’s election. Ms. Kabot, a one-term Republican, was defeated by Southampton Town Councilwoman Anna Throne-Holst, the Democratic nominee for town supervisor.

Ms. Kabot is being tried in Riverhead Town Court because both justices in Westhampton Beach Village, where Ms. Kabot was arrested and charged with DWI on September 7, recused themselves from hearing her case. Ms. Kabot said she knows both justices personally.

“The intent was to get the trial done before the election,” said a disappointed Ms. Kabot after her court appearance in Riverhead last Thursday, October 29.

Mr. Keahon said he also asked for the trial date to be pushed back because he has not yet received the transcripts from Ms. Kabot’s refusal hearing at the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles in September. Ms. Kabot had to attend that hearing because she refused to take a breath test, a decision that resulted in her driver’s license automatically being suspended for a year.

Mr. Baron also made a motion in court last Thursday to challenge the judge’s decision to drop one of two violations filed against Ms. Kabot for refusing to take the breath test. Mr. Keahon said he learned that the second violation, which is separate from the DMV charge, was dropped on Monday, October 26.

Mr. Baron’s motion will be discussed during Ms. Kabot’s next court appearance, scheduled for Tuesday, November 24.

If they wanted this issue resolved, they would not have delayed the trial. What a transparent attempt to avoid responsibility before the election. This is the most high profile case this lawyer has and I can guarantee he would not ask for a postponement were it not in the best interest of his client. Hooey!

The decision is easy for voters next Tuesday November 3rd -- why vote for a politician named Linda Kabot, whose leadership skills are sorely lacking, who saddles her Town with crippling tax increases and massive debt, who fails to take any responsibility and is accused of drunk driving and, while exercising her right to courtroom hocus pocus and a prolonged legal engagement, subjects taxpayers in a Town crippled by mismanagement to an on-going and distracting drama ...

and to the rest of you who are out to seek revenge on Kabot, what are you complaining about? The fact that her trial is postponed until AFTER the election is NOT in her favor. It gives you Holst-lovers a better chance for victory. Most of you complained Linda was getting preferential treatment by getting an early trial. Now shes NOT and youre still complaining. Your unhappiness doesnt really have anything to do w/Linda now does it?
By Sam (252), Westhampton Beach on Oct 29, 09 1:17 PM
Sam, Are your crazy or just blinded by your devotion to the right? It was Linda who asked that her court date be moved up so that she could deal with it before the election and now it is Linda who has asked that her court date be pushed back - probably because she realized it would not come out favorably. Read the article - the date was not pushed back on her, it was requested by her lawyer. Period.

Stop trying to make a victim out of her - she does a good enough job of that by herself. ...more

Linda can't control the outcome of this trial like she thought she could have. She didn't get the judge she wanted; this one's a lot tougher and he won't play her political games. Linda poured the wine in the glass, she drank it and then got behind the wheel. This isn't Anna's fault. It's time for the tough, people's supervisor to get a spanking for what she did, just like all her people do when they're DWI. As for the taxpayers of this Town, it's time for us all to realize that we are NOT ...more
By Dodger (143), Southampton Village on Oct 29, 09 2:02 PM
Take into account that Linda is proposing to cut eight police jobs - that's a fact. And that many of our police earn in excess of $100,000 a year. And, that four minutes of tape is inexplicably missing from the arresting officers camera, according to the Southampton Press.

Any of us can say we would have handled the situation differently, but we weren't there to know what exactly was said or done. Let's let the courts decide. Personally, I don't have the guts to take on the police.

By Turkey Bridge (1858), Quiogue on Oct 29, 09 3:01 PM
littleplains is exactly right.

When you are innocent, you do not refuse a test that will proclaim your innocence.

The court action was postponed so Linda's legal team might have additional time to dissect and tear apart the WHB police -- destroying police reputations is her only recourse. If she can destroy these officers of the law and throw into question their training, procedures etc. Kabot then changes the focus away from her own actions and thus, escapes legal responsibility ...more

Interestingly, it isn't the candidates on either side who arrange to remove the signs each year - and not much they can say or do would affect it, either. It's usually done by a few over zealous partisan supporters who seem to think their doing so will help their candidates. Sometimes it's done by people who don't like a particular person for some reason, and other times it seems to be done by those who just enjoy larking about at night yanking up signs.

Ask former Riverhead Town Supervisor Joe Janoski who has been collecting "disability" from his elected job of Town Supervisor about the wonderful benefits of elected office.

Linda Kabot has plenty of access to Town staff as drivers (and has on occasion been seen using them) ... don't cry for her ... she's got plenty of benefits in the Town Supervisor job, golfbuddy.

Just some additional information, this paper had an article in the western addition of todays paper that the WHB Mayor suspended 2 police officers from the WHB police department. This happened following and investigation conducted by the suffolk county police dept internal affairs bureau. The mayor and SC internal affairs declined to name the officers or provide a copy of the report. Also the DMV report is missing on the Kabot case. These would be 2 very good reasons to postpone in my view.

No sir - the point is that standard levels do NOT fluctuate. You're the one assuming that someone critical of Kabot has to be a Clinton supporter, by definition. Facts are facts. Getting sex in the White House was naughty and immoral, and Clinton paid a price for it. DWI is a criminal act, and it's totally legit to point that out. there's no double standard at all.

My taxes went up about $100 or less since she's been supervisor . The voters should be pissed off with ATH for standing up for unions and special interests and not the voters of this town. She also accepted $2,300 (from the pba) more than allowable by law from them.

I have never read any comments from you so far that have been accurate or factual. Part of your blog is correct.
The year's of the deficits were 2003-2007 who was the supervisor then?
Mr. Heaney was, Kabot was a councilwoman, finally you see the light.

The comptroller during those years cooked the books.

What difference does a contribution make? The $2,300 was in excess of the allowable amount by law. Thats all. No big deal.

Many (not all) endorsements by individual special interest groups and unions are given because they believe that the election (or non election) of particuar candidates will benefit them alone, with little if any consideration to what is best for Southampton Town.
