Ogdensburg man jailed for criminal contempt


An Ogdensburg man was sentenced to jail Tuesday for second-degree criminal contempt.

In Ogdensburg City Court, Arthur J. Parmeter Jr., 43, of 136 Nelson Road, was sentenced to 10-and-a-half months in St. Lawrence County jail, Canton.

Mr. Parmeter pleaded guilty to the charge on July 3 in a deal to satisfy separate counts of it from Jan. 25 and March 29. Each time he was accused of violating court orders of protection for a total of four people. Court documents identified them as Robin L. Downey, Jared Fisher, Ginger Parmeter and Julia Fisher.

Judge William R. Small also ordered Mr. Parmeter to pay $200 in surcharges.

In other cases before Judge Small on Tuesday:

Jacob W. Hess, 21, of 101 Elizabeth St., Ogdensburg, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct to satisfy that charge and resisting arrest, both from Aug. 25.

He was fined and surcharged a total of $220 and was ordered to perform 12 hours of community service.

He was represented by the St. Lawrence County Public Defender’s Office.

Angela Gonzales, 31, of 5901 Route 37, Ogdensburg, pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree criminal contempt to satisfy counts of the charge from Jan. 29, March 16 and June 6. In each case, she was accused of violating a court order of protection.

Judge Small granted Miss Gonzales a one-year conditional discharge, ordered her to pay $400 in a fine and surcharges and to perform 50 hours of community service. She was also told to abide by a no harassment order of protection for the sole complainant in all three court orders, Michael Montalvo.
