G, Massena, with a felony count of first-degree criminal contempt and second-degree aggravated harassment at 7:38 p.m. Thursday stemming from an investigation into incidents that took reportedly took place on April 19 into the early morning hours of April 20.

She also reportedly called Ms. Rupert’s workplace four times on the evening of April 19. Ms. Rupert said she had answered the calls made to her residence and told Davison each time to stop calling her.

“I answered the phone every time that Jessica called trying to keep her from waking my parents. Every time I told her I did not want her calling my house, that I did not want to talk to her and that she was going to wake my parents up,” Ms. Rupert noted in a statement she provided police.

Davison was arraigned by Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and released under the supervision of the probation department. A no harassment order of protection was changed to a no contact order of protection.
