Man Arrested Again While Serving Time in Local Jail
Over the years of reporting local news, one item that always seems to make me stop and think for a bit is when it is told that a person who is an inmate already in jail gets arrested again for another offense. Arrested while in jail? Yes, it always makes me stop and think. Well, it has happened again. In Delaware County.
Sheriff Craig S. DuMond announced that a Delaware County Correctional Facility inmate has been arrested and charged with violating a temporary order of protection issued on behalf of a domestic violence victim.
So how could a man already incarcerated be arrested again for violating an order of protection.
DuMond said the inmate, Israel L. Rivera, 48 years old of Arkville, N.Y. was currently serving a jail sentence of imprisonment for criminal contempt, violated the protection order by mailing correspondence to the victim he was ordered to have no contact with by the Delaware County Family Court Order of Protection. The order specifically said no contact with the victim of any kind.
So, on Saturday April 24, 202 Rivera was once again arrested and charged with a new felony of criminal contempt in the first degree.
Rivera was then arraigned before on-call Town of Stamford Justice Lamport, via virtual teleconference, and was held in lieu of $10,000 cash bail, $20,000 secured bond or $30,000 partially unsecured bond pending a future court appearance in the Town of Delhi.
I guess this answers my question of how does someone get re-arrested while still serving time in jail.
