CRIMINAL CONTEMPT - MASSENA - Village police charged Anthony E. Wells, 21, of no fixed address, with second-degree criminal contempt at 1 a.m. Monday. He was arraigned by Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $100 cash.
Police said they responded to a complaint at 6 p.m. Sunday that Wells was violating a stay away order of protection by visiting Leonna Bentley at her residence.
They said Ms. Bentley initially denied Wells had been at her residence, but her four-year-old son countered that he had been there, against suggestions his mother was making to him, and had just left the residence, according to court documents.
I then asked Leonna again. I advised her that having her four-year-old son lie for her was not a good thing, Ptl. Michael Flynn noted in his statement in the court documents. Leonna then told Anthony was there for about an hour to see their daughter.
Wells turned himself in to police early Monday morning. He told police he had only been at Ms. Bemtleys residence for approximately 15 minutes.
