DELHI – District Attorney Shawn Smith announced today that Ryan J. Wood, 36, of Sidney, New York, appeared in Delaware County Court on February 14, 2024, and was arraigned on a sealed indictment.    

Wood appeared before the Honorable John L. Hubbard, Delaware County Court Judge, and a One Count Indictment was unsealed.  Count One of the indictment charged the defendant with the Class B felony of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree. It is alleged that Wood sold fentanyl in the Village of Sidney on September 18, 2023.  

After being arraigned, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the indictment. Due to New York State’s Bail reform law, charges relating to the sale of drugs do not qualify for bail.  As such, the defendant was released from custody.  

If the defendant is convicted of this crime, he faces a maximum sentence of 9 years in state prison and up to 2 years of post-release supervision. 

District Attorney Shawn Smith commended Village of Sidney Police Sergeant Christopher Dionne for his thorough investigation of this case. 

Smith stated, “This indictment is part of an ongoing effort to combat the sale of drugs in Delaware County.  My office will continue to work with law enforcement agencies to remove illegal drugs from our communities.” 

As are all persons accused of a crime, this defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
