New York: Former police officer Sean Dolliver, 39, charged with animal cruelty

NEW YORK -- A former Middleton police officer is scheduled to stand trial Wednesday in Rochester District Court on cruelty to animals and criminal mischief charges.

Sean Dolliver, 39, of Wolfeboro, faces four Class A misdemeanors, all of which are out of New Durham, according to court records.

Dolliver was charged with two cruelty to animals and two criminal mischief counts in February in connection with an incident at an undisclosed location in New Durham, according to court records.

He was released on $5,000 personal-recognizance bail and ordered to stay away from another party connected with the incident.

Court records show the cruelty to animals charges are dated Feb. 2, whereas the criminal mischief charges are dated Aug. 1, 2016.

Additional information about the charges wasn’t available Tuesday. Assistant County Attorney Carol Chellman, the prosecutor in the case, couldn’t be reached for comment.

The trial is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Wednesday. It will mark the second time in the past two years Dolliver has stood trial on criminal charges — in 2016, he was acquitted of a Class B DWI charge.

Dolliver was charged with that DWI in 2015 after he allegedly rolled his vehicle on Governors Road in Milton around 11 p.m. on April 28 of that year. A New Durham resident at the time, Dolliver was the only person in the vehicle and was uninjured, police said.

Dolliver fought the charge, and Judge Sharon DeVries found him not guilty on July 7, 2016, according to court records.
