Mayor Barlow Highlights Impact Of Bail Reform As Oswego Man Is Arrested 18 Times In 4 Days – Oswego County Today



OSWEGO – Mayor Billy Barlow’s office released the following after an Oswego man was arrested and released numerous times within a short time period.

On April 12, 2021, the City of Oswego Police Department arrested Robert L. Updegrove, age 32, for Burglary in the 3rd degree and petit larceny, after an investigation showed he stole items from a local business.

After being arrested and released 17 times within a four-day span, following the 18th arrest Mr. Updegrove was arraigned and remanded to the Oswego County Jail (OCJ).

A review of Updegrove’s arrest history shows that he had been arrested by the City of Oswego police numerous times since April 1 of 2021. Some of these arrests occurred mere hours after each other. Due to New York state bail reform laws, Updegrove was released with an appearance ticket for most of these arrests.

“Mr. Updegrove’s long arrest record clearly demonstrates how flawed New York State’s so-called ‘Bail Reform’ laws are and how the changes simply empower criminals, hinder law enforcement, absorb valuable resources and leave law-abiding citizens in real danger,” Mayor Billy Barlow said.

Below is a list of his recent arrests and the accompanying results:
