Jamestown man sentenced again

A Jamestown man was sentenced for a second time on the same charges on Tuesday.

Jean C. Jimenez-Camacho, Jamestown, N.Y., had been sentenced on July 20 on charges of unauthorized use of an automobile and driving while under suspension after taking a car from the owner of a restaurant where he was working.

But Judge Gregory Hammond said on Tuesday that Jimenez-Camacho tested positive for tramadol, fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.

At the start of the proceeding, Hammond asked him if he was “doing better today than last time?”

Jimenez-Camacho apologized and Hammond said his apology was not needed and that he would be including a drug and alcohol evaluation in the sentence order.

“Mr. Comacho has a serious drug problem,” Chief Public Defender John Parroccini said, explaining that the depth of the problem is displayed by “the kind of cocktail” that was in his client’s system during his last court appearance.

He told the court that, for 12 days, he has been incarcerated “basically detoxing.”

Jimenez-Camacho again apologized to the court. “I lied to you,” he said.

Online court records show that $10,000 bail was revoked after the July 20 proceeding.

On a count of unauthorized use of automobiles and other vehicles, he was sentenced to 18 days to two years less one day incarceration in the Warren County Jail with credit for 18 days time served making him eligible for immediate parole, $875 in fines and fees, to have no contact with the victim or trespass on his personal or professional property, undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation and complete 30 hours of community service. For the driving under suspension charge, he was sentenced to a $200 fine and a 12 month driver’s license suspension.
