ONEONTA – State Police arrested a Unadilla man twice on Sunday for allegedly threatening a victim he had previously been ordered to stay away from.
Dennis P. Lafferty, 38, was arrested at 1:37 p.m. after troopers responded to fa domestic dispute at a residence on Clifton Street in the Village of Unadilla. Troopers located Lafferty on the back porch of the home where, according to the victim, he was allegedly making threats to harm a resident.
An investigation revealed that Lafferty was previously issued a full stay-away order of protection by a court that protects the residents in the home, and he was arrested and charged with the felony of Criminal Contempt in the first degree. He was arraigned by teleconference and released on his own recognizance, but the judge once again ordered Lafferty to stay away from the residence.
At 7:30 p.m., an hour after his arraignment, troopers contacted the victim to follow-up and learned that Lafferty was once again allegedly at the residence. Troopers once again located him on the back porch of the victim’s property and he was again arrested and charged with the misdemeanor of Criminal Contempt in the second degree for violating the court order.
Lafferty was arraigned by teleconference and remanded to the Delaware County Jail on $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bail bond.
Thanks to our governor he will be out before we know it and right back at it. This is just two of many instances that this has happened. He is an addict and doesn’t comprehend his actions. What is it going to take for this terror to his family to stop? A death or severe injury to one of the victims? Someone needs to advocate for this mom and her children. They need protection from him because the “order of protection” means nothing with the new laws put in order by Governor Cuomo.
Unfortunately we have a worthless criminal for a Governor who advocates for the other criminals. People are going to get sick of this and they’re going to start defending themselves and put an end to these criminals once and for all and then all the bleeding hearts are going to cry when our government had a chance to do something but made it so the police can’t even do their job so it’s time we take over!
Cuomo is more for making a name for himself than the safety of the American people. It’s exhausting watching so many Politicians ruin this Country.
