Local News

A deal has been reached between the Steuben County District Attorney and Gary McCaslin, the leader of Citizens for a Better Southern Tier.

McCaslin allegedly stole a Tom Reed campaign sign in July and was charged with petit larceny.

McCaslin’s attorney Christina Sonsire confirmed they have accepted an offer of an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal on the charge of petit larceny.

Congressman Tom Reed’s campaign released the following statement:

“I am pleased that Gary McCaslin accepted the offer from the District Attorney allowing this matter to be resolved,” said Nicholas Weinstein, the victim in the criminal case against Gary McCaslin and the campaign manager Tom Reed for Congress in 2018.

“We suggested an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal would be appropriate to the District Attorney’s office at the outset of these criminal proceedings and the District Attorney extended this offer to Gary McCaslin at their first appearance. We are pleased that Gary McCaslin and his attorneys have finally accepted an offer now that the political scrutiny on the matter has subsided.”
