After returning home from a golf tournament Saturday night, I lost consciousness and was taken to the emergency room in Syracuse. After several tests it was determined I had acute kidney failure caused by severe dehydration as a result of high alcohol consumption coupled with the hot weather.


A toxicology screen performed at the hospital showed that there were no illegal drugs in my system. I recognize I have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol that requires I receive the necessary help to overcome. I have taken a medical leave from the District Attorney’s office and I have already begun taking the appropriate measures to get better. I truly appreciate all the support I have received from my family and friends and look forward to focusing on being the best person I can be for my family.
