On Tuesday, February 21st, a harassment complaint came to the Cortland County Sheriff Office that was coming from the Town of Freetown in Cortland County.
The victim reported to officers that they were receiving text messages from 32 year old Micheal C. Palmer of Cortland. The victim had a full stay away order or protection in place from Palmer. Officers were able to determine Palmer did send text messages to the victim.
Palmer, though, had been previously convicted within the past two years of Criminal Contempt in the 2nd for an unrelated matter to the one mentioned above. He was arrested by officers and charged with Criminal Contempt in the 1st, a Felony.
He was processed and arraigned through the Centralized Arraignment process and then released on his own recognizance. Palmer is due to appear in Town of Freetown Court next month.
