Elmy gets time served

F ormer Champlain Harbor Marina & RV Park Owner Robert Elmy has pleaded guilty to a felony charge in connection with an October 2011 incident.
Elmy was convicted of second degree assault in 2012, after a trial regarding injuries that his former wife Patricia Elmy obtained during the 2011 incident. Despite his guilty plea, Elmy will receive no additional jail time.
Washington County Judge Kelly McKeighan sentenced Elmy to “time served,” which ultimately amounted to the two years of prison time he served prior to May of this year.
In May a state appeals court ordered a new trial in the Elmy case. The court ruled that the Washington County jury, which convicted Elmy, should not have been allowed to hear some information that they has heard about the former Whitehall businessman.
The “uncharged bad acts” against Elmy that were heard by the jury included former domestic violence allegations and former sexual assault allegations, neither of which led to charges against Elmy.
Patricia Elmy passed away in 2012, at age 31, thus complicating any possibility for a retrial in this case.
The 65-year-old Elmy now resides in Florida.
