LIVONIA – A Monroe County woman is facing felony charges after an investigation into a one-car crash involving a reported stolen car on Harder Road earlier this month, reports the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to the scene about 3:05 a.m. on July 15 where they located the involved vehicle in a ditch and no occupants in the vehicles. Deputies later found the operator of the vehicle, identified as Aimee K. Magorka, 32, of Rochester, walking in the area. She was determined to be the only occupant in the vehicle at the time of the crash, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Livonia EMS responded to the scene to check on injuries that Magorka sustained from the crash and she was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, for treatment of minor injuries.
The investigation revealed that the vehicle had been reported stolen from the town of Gates, the Sheriff’s Office said.
A records check also showed that Magorka was operating with a driver’s license that had been revoked due to driving while intoxicated-related offense. She is also a parolee, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Margorka was arrested July 15 upon her release from the hospital. She was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a Class E Felony, and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
Magorka was turned over to Central Booking deputies at Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The charges qualified for pre-arraignment detention under the state’s Justice Reform Act as Magorka had multiple prior felony convictions.
The Livingston County District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail and requested that Magorka be held without the chance of bail due to a prior felony conviction.
Magorka has later arraigned at Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part at Livingston County Jail before Town of Mount Morris Justice David Provo, who remanded Magorka to the custody of the Sheriff without the chance of bail pending further court proceedings.
Magorka had been released to parole in April after serving 10 months in Albion Correctional Facility for a 2019 conviction in Monroe County or driving while intoxicated-alcohol/drugs as a second offense, which made the charge a Class E felony. She has been sentenced to 16 months to 4 years in state prison, according to records from the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
