Today, an elderly 89 year old man was evicted from the land he has occupied for the last 30 years. Duane Prince was escorted from his property by the Monroe County Sheriff's Department. Shame as he is a disabled veteran
Today, an elderly 89 year old man was evicted from the land he has occupied for the last 30 years. Duane Prince was escorted from his property by the Monroe County Sheriff's Department. Shame that this long time Clarkson resident has been ripped from the one place he has called home for over a quarter of a century.
Back in 2014, there was a gentlemen's agreement made between Mr. Prince and the current owner, Kevin Carrier. He stated he wanted to turn his possessions into a museum. So Duane sold the land for $1, with the stipulation that he would be allowed to stay there because of his advanced age. He even paid the taxes on the property this year when Kevin didn't have the money to make the payment. Carrier's ownership was substantiated by a review of the current Clarkson Assessment Roll for 2020(https://clarksonny.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/2020-Clarkson-Final-Roll.pdf) Governor Cuomo has also instituted a moratorium on evictions until August 20, 2020 because of COVID, so his removal was against his civil rights (https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/amid-ongoing-covid-19-pandemic-governor-cuomo-announces-moratorium-covid-related-evictions-will.)
Mr. Carrier has a history of unscrupulous behavior (https://publicapps.doccs.ny.gov/ParoleeLookup/Default?page=1) with a sentence of time in state prison for Grand Larceny, Criminal Possession of Stolen Property, Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property, all Felonies. He was released from prison in 2002 and remained on parole until 2006.
Is it a coincidence that Carrier also owns a salvage and recycling business? And now Mr. Prince is his latest victim. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Duane Prince as he attempts to rebuild his life.
