Posted 12/4/2019

Suffolk County Police yesterday arrested a woman for Driving While Intoxicated under Leandra’s Law after she was involved in a crash in Lake Grove with three children in the vehicle.
Jordan Godfrey was driving a 2018 Hyundai sedan southbound on Hawkins Avenue, near Patricia Lane, when the vehicle veered off the roadway and struck a utility pole at approximately 5:35 p.m. Four passengers in the Hyundai, Gail Block, 75, of Islip, and three children, ages two, three and seven, were transported by the Ronkonkoma Fire Department to Stony Brook University Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The children were released to the custody of a parent at the hospital. Godfrey was not injured.
Fourth Squad detectives charged Godfrey, 22, of 11 Hollo Drive, Holbrook, with Driving While Intoxicated, Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated with a Child Passenger 15 Years Old or Younger (Leandra’s Law), and three counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
Godfrey is being held overnight at the Fourth Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on December 5.
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
