Ogdensburg mayor's court appearance adjourned to Dec. 21
OGDENSBURG - A court appearance for Ogdensburg Mayor Jeffrey M. Skelly has been adjourned until Dec. 21 in Oswegatchie Town Court.
Skelly was initially charged on Aug. 23 for an incident that occurred in November of 2021.Skelly had accused retired Ogdensburg Firefighter Gerald Mack of slashing his tires. Mack was charged with stalking and criminal mischief, but the charges were tossed out by a judge at the prosecutor's recommendation.
In September an attorney for Skelly argued that the case was being tried in the wrong court.
The judge agreed and told deputies that they would need to refile the charges.
Skelly was charged again on Sept. 23. His appearances have been adjourned twice since then.
