New details are coming to light about the arrest of David Perry last night that might explain the reason he was arrested and held without bail in the Broome County jail in Binghamton, New York, rather than Elmira, where Perry lives. The warrant issued for his arrest was initiated in Broome County, where the New York State Insurance Fund is located. The fund is responsible for the payments of Workman's Compensation for injury claims for Region 2, which includes the Elmira area where Perry had filed a claim for a work-related injury. The New York State Insurance Fund would be the injured party to Perry's possible fraudulent claim of injury and would seek recovery of any money paid out to Perry for that claim. The charges of felony grand larceny and fraud would in all likelihood be tried in the Broome County Court system.
Perry's attorney Thomas Reilly is in Elmira and would have to travel a substantial distance to represent his client.
Perry remains in the Broome County Jail and is being held without bail.
