A Cortlandville man who admitted earlier this month to manufacturing the drug meth and was supposed to check into the county jail to await sentencing a week later but failed to do so has been arrested again, this time for violating an order of protection.
Homer Village Police have charged 44 year old Benjamin Slamp of 4379 West State Road with a misdemeanor charge of criminal contempt. Slamp was arrested Monday after he was found at 40 Clinton Street in Homer. The unnamed individual living has an order of protection barring contact with Slamp.
Slamp was also wanted on a warrant out of county court after he failed to appear for sentencing for his previous drug charges.
Slamp was arrested last August after he was found to be manufacturing the drug methamphetamine in his home on Route 281, he was arrested again in February after he was found with ingredients to make drug in the Town of Homer.
On June 4th he pled guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine; both class D felonies.
As part of the plea deal, Slamp agreed to forfeit his home, which is assessed at nearly $68 thousand dollars. The house will be sold with the proceeds going to the D-A’s drug forfeiture fund.
Prosecutors have asked Slamp to be sentenced to up to 4 years in prison with 3 years of post release supervision, he faced up to five years on the charges.
Slamp was allowed to remain free for one week to get his affairs in order before he was sent to State prison; Slamp apparently did not comply with the Court order.
Slamp was arraigned in Homer Town Court on the new charge and was sent to the County Jail on $10.000 cash or $20.000 bond, he is due in County Court today, and he will reappear in Homer Town Court on July 2 to answer the new charge.
