SILVER CREEK – The case of Jeanne Polisoto, 67, of Forestville who has been charged with threatening the Hanover Town Assessor’s Office with a bomb, has been moved to Chautauqua County Court and is expected to be presented to a grand jury.

She has been charged with making a terroristic threat, second-degree harassment and second-degree obstructing governmental administration in connection with the Oct. 1 incident.

Silver Creek Justice Richard Saletta, who presided over the case Wednesday in village court, said that Polisoto’s case will be heard on the county level due to the severity of the charges.

A request by Polisoto’s attorney, James Dimmer, to have bail reduced and release Polisoto on her own recognizance was denied in the local court.

The case is expected to be brought before a county grand jury, Saletta said.

An order of protection was issued requesting that Polisoto stay at least 500 feet away from the town employees that she allegedly threatened during the incident.
