Brasher-area man jailed for violating order of protection


CRIMINAL CONTEMPT - NORFOLK - Massena-based state police charged Allan M. LaPage, 24, of 373 Hurley Road, Brasher, with a felony count of first-degree criminal contempt, second-degree criminal contempt and second-degree aggravated harassment early Tuesday. LaPage allegedly violated a no contact order of protection when he made several phone calls to his ex-girlfriend, Michelle Zakarauskas, over a period of several hours late Mnday night and early Tuesday morning. He was arraigned by Norfolk Town Justice Donald Lustyik and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond. He was also picked up on a bench warrant issued by St. Lawrence County Court.

Troopers had charged LaPagewith first-degree criminal contempt, second-degree harassment and endangering the welfare of a child in late April following an incident reported at 11 a.m. April 20 from the town of Stockholm.

He reportedly pushed and shoved Ms.Zakarauskas while she was holding a small child during a domestic dispute. Lapage was reportedly upset Ms. Zakarauskas had been in contact with her parents the previous evening. His actions violated a no harassment order of protection Stockholm Town Justice Wayne Williams had signed in February after LaPage had been involved in a dispute with Ms. Zakarauskas and her father during a dispute in a Hurley Road driveway. The town justice had later granted Ms. Zakarauskas’ request to have the order changed from no contact to no harassment. The order was changed back to no contact after his April arrest.
