On March 7, 2023, at about 1:51pm, Seneca County Sheriff’s Investigators arrested Nicole G. Heidemann, age 42, and Michael R. Kushaney, age 39, both of 1326 West Townline Road, Phelps, New York, on a charge of Endangering the Welfare of a Child. It is alleged that Heidemann and Kushaney subjected a child to an unsafe environment that led to the child ingesting illicit drugs. The child was initially transported to Strong Memorial Hospital by North Seneca Ambulance and has since fully recovered. Both Heidemann and Kushaney were issued an appearance ticket to appear in the Junius Town Court on March 16, 2023, at 7pm. Sheriff’s Investigators are working closely with Seneca County Child Protective Services.
