The Otsego County Correctional Facility will now be used as a pre-arraignment holding area for any court in Otsego County under legislation sponsored by Senator Jim Seward and signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday. In a statement Seward says the bill allows those waiting arraignment to be held at the county jail which can be beneficial when arrests are made after regular business hours when a local holding area or court might not be open. The law takes effect immediately.
