Accused Leandra’s Law Violator Charged with Criminal Impersonation

Police: Alphanso Corrodus provided police with a false name when he was stopped for a felony DWI.

 The following was provided by the Peekskill police department. It does not indicate a conviction. 

45-year-old Peekskill resident, was charged with criminal impersonation when he appeared at Peekskill City Court on Aug. 13. for a previous DWI charge. The DWI charge was issued on July 7, 2012, when Corrodus told police his name was Seymour Corrodus when he allegedly drove drunk with two daughters in his car, an aggravated DWI with child, which is a felony “Leandra’s Law” violation. He was also charged with DWI, a misdemeanor, on July 7. Police that Corrodus has been arrested under the names “Alphanso B. Corrodus,” and “Alphonso B. Corrodus,” said Lt. Eric Johansen.

It was further learned that Corrodus had been previously convicted of a DWI in Buchanan in 2004 so he is now facing two felony DWI charges – one because he violated “Leandra’s Law,” and another because this is his second DWI within ten years, which elevates the misdemeanor DWI charge to a felony, Johansen said. Corrodus was remanded to the Westchester County jail following his arraignment in Peekskill City Court.

Impersonation is a common thing in Peekskill. There are seven people who are impersonating being a competent government. We have a person who continually impersonates a mayor and as someone who is against a meth clinic. Her real identity is of an incompetent who conspired with the property owner to secretly bring the clinic to town.

Pete...you need a hobby or something. You shouldn't have that much time on your hands to find a way to turn every story about Peekskill into a story about how much you don't like the current council. Get your neighbors and friends to vote next election and maybe things will change to your liking.

Must be very similar to how she secretly stole the Holiday Inn Express from the Rock Cut and Cortlandt and swindled it to Peekskill....But golly gee garsh, that has just sat as an empty watering hole for the mosquitoes & West Nile Virus. They Pay pretty Good Taxes I hear!
