Ex-con gets 3rd prison term for choking woman


A two-time ex-con with an extensive history of violence against women was sentenced to his third state prison term last week in Genesee County Court.

Adam M. Jellison, 43, of Attica was sentenced to 18 months to three years in prison as a second-felony offender.

Jellison pleaded guilty to second-degree strangulation for an attack on a woman Jan. 1 where he choked her during an incident on Columbia Avenue.

Jellison has a history of domestic violence arrests, including a vicious attack of a woman in Attica in 2017.

Jellison beat and choked the woman to unconsciousness.

He was eventually sentenced to an 18-month to three-year term in state prison and was released to parole Oct. 25, 2018. He was on parole until July 26, 2020.

That was Ellison’s second state prison term.

In 2003, he was one of several people arrested in connection with the drug overdose death of a Varysburg man.

Jellison was convicted of selling the drugs to the man and served four years of a two to eight year term.
