Ontario County has one of the toughest most respected DA's in the state
I don't know why, at least any more.
He messed up the case in Seneca County, never solved the original fire. Everyone charged was either plea bargained or convicted of misdemeanors. And now he wants to charge for his "valuable" time.
There's also those reports about lawsuits against for him withholding evidence.
He "won" the Wido rape case but only after most of it was dismissed and he put a half dozen girls through hell. Then he plea bargained the sentence.
Now there's plea bargaining this case down to six months.
You have to wonder if Tantillio hasn't lost it. Every politician gets burned out eventually. Just look at McCain 2008 compared to McCain 2000.
