PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh man was charged with criminal contempt and stalking Tuesday.
Daniel Roeser, 24, of Plattsburgh allegedly violated a stay-away order issued by Plattsburgh City Court on four occasions, said Plattsburgh City Police Lt. Scott Beebie.
The order was put in place after a domestic incident, Beebie said.
The alleged violations happened over the course of several weeks, he said.
Roeser allegedly saw the protected woman in a business and followed her from business to business, Beebie said.
He also allegedly sent a text message, a request for contact approval on Skype and another electronic message was sent on his behalf through a third party to the woman, he said.
Roeser was arrested at 3:10 p.m. Tuesday on Broad Street.
He was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, for allegedly violating the stay-away order. He was also charged with third-degree stalking since the alleged harassment happened over an extended period of time.
Roeser was arraigned before Judge John F. Niles in Plattsburgh City Court Tuesday evening.
