  Ervin W. Delude Sr.

Ervin W. Delude Sr., 45, of Gainesville, was arrested May 1 following an investigation into a violation of an order of protection. Delude was in Wyoming County Jail when he was allegedly found to be making phone calls to a female outside of the jail who had an active order of protection against him. Additionally, he had previous domestic violence criminal convictions in the past five years, which elevated the level of this offense to felonies. 

Delude was charged with criminal contempt in the first degree and aggravated family offense. 

On May 2, he was arrested again for two felony counts after violating an order of protection. Now an inmate in Wyoming County Jail, he is accused of placing more than 60 phone calls since April 25 to a female who currently has a stay away order of protection against him. 

Officials say, on the same day of his arrest (May 2) he had a different inmate call a person outside of the jail to then send text messages to the victim on his behalf. 

Delude was then charged again with criminal contempt in the first degree and aggravated family offense.

He was arraigned in the Village of Warsaw Court for both arrests and jailed without bail. 

He is due in the Village of Warsaw Court May 22.

This is not Delude’s first run-in with the law, he was charged April 24 with criminal contempt in the first degree and aggravated family offense, both are felonies, and resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He was arrested following a domestic dispute in Gainesville.

The students filed in noisily, as students do, into the bus garage. Once they were situated in their seats, the bus garage bay doors opened. The noisy students quieted at once. Before them three of their friends were involved in a car crash following a night of partying. One of their classmates was injured, one was taken away in handcuffs, and one was dead, her blood trailing down the passenger-side door, pooling onto the roadway.  

Teens in 11th and 12th grade at Letchworth High School were witness to the possible consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs during a DWI crash simulation held at the school Friday afternoon.

Over the loudspeaker the students hear the call of the dispatcher. Within seconds, a siren went off. Within minutes, the first cop cruiser pulled into the parking lot, seconds later, the first ambulance.

“These are the same kids you hang with, play sports with, enjoy life with. In an instant they go from joy and laughter to pain and tears,” said Wyoming County Sheriff Gregory Rudolph. “Imagine you are a victim of this crash…this alcohol-related crash. You experience pain and anxiety caused by the metal and plastic bending and crushing around you as the vehicles collided. You are sitting in a pool of your own blood experiencing pain and suffering that no one should ever have to go through. You are sitting there helpless as you are waiting for help to arrive. Your fear turns to shock.”

As Rudolph was speaking, rescue personnel continued to arrive. The voices of the first responders are calm as they are assessing the situation. Medical responders are now on scene. A multitude of people are working feverishly to stabilize the driver who is still alive and sitting next to her now-dead friend. 

The driver in the other car is looked over for injuries and asked to step out of the vehicle, all the while the sounds of saws and extraction equipment break the seemingly chaotic scene. 

A white sheet is placed over the driver to protect her from the broken glass. Her passenger is covered with a white sheet and left alone as EMS focus their attention on the teen who is still alive.

Since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) began recording alcohol-related statistics in 1982, the number of persons under 21 killed in drunk driving crashes decreased 80 percent. In 1982 there were 5,215 crashes. In 2015 there were 1,021. These fatalities account for 10 percent of the drunk driving fatalities in the United States. 

“When you are talking and you are looking at them (students) there isn’t horseplay going on, they aren’t talking, they are looking past you, paying attention to the scene. You can see it in their eyes that this could happen.”

The crash simulation is made possible by Partners 4 Prevention, School Resource Officer and Wyoming County Sheriff Deputy Ivan Carrasquillo, the NYS Troopers, the Silver Springs and Castile fire departments, Mercy Flight, the Wyoming County Coroner’s Office, District Attorney Donald O’Geen, and the Letchworth Central School SADD Club members and parent volunteers. 

The event, hosted by the Gainesville Fire Department, was intended to highlight the dangers of driving under the influence during the prom season. One third of all alcohol-related teen traffic deaths occur between April and June, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, with vehicle accidents ranking as the top cause of death for those between 12 and 19 years old. In fact, 1,000 young people die annually during prom and graduations celebrations, according to the National Traffic Administration.
