NYSTPBA Newsletter Updates from the NYSTPBA Board of Directors Upcoming Trial for Woman Charged with Assaulting Trooper The trial against Deyanna Davis, the woman who recklessly drove through a police blockade on June 1, 2020 during the Buffalo riot - severely injuring one of our members, Trooper Ron Ensminger - is set to start on December 12 in Erie County Court. She faces two counts of assault in the first degree as a result of her indictment a year ago. As this is a public forum, anyone who is not a part of the case and is not going to testify is welcome to attend and support Ron.
