Police Blotter information is provided by the Batavia Police Department. Charges are not evidence of guilt. They are a record of police actions taken on a given day, and persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court. If you or a family member are charged or cited and the case is subsequently adjudicated, we encourage you to notify charles.menchaca@patch.com. We will verify and report the outcome.
