AVON: Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of an Avon NY man on felony Criminal Contempt charges after an investigation by the Sheriff’s Office.
On June 27, 2019 Deputy Jerry Pilkenton responded to an address on Suburban Drive in the Town of Avon to investigate a 911 hang up call.
It is alleged that 62 year old Brian F. Seaver was the person who called 911 before hanging up. It is further alleged that Seaver originally called 911 to report that he was consuming alcohol and that he was violating his conditions of probation that he is currently under.
The investigation also revealed that Seaver currently had four (4) active orders of protections against him issued out of the Town of Avon Court and the Village of Geneseo Court, where the Judges have ordered a complete stay away from the same protected person. That
protected person was also at the residence. Seaver was arrested and taken into custody on four (4) counts of felony Criminal Contempt in
the 1st Degree. The charges are felonies because Seaver had a previous conviction for Criminal Contempt in the 2nd Degree on April 3, 2019.
Seaver was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail due to the felony level charges. It was recommended that Seaver be held on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
Seaver was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Town of Groveland Justice Jeanean Love. The Judge did remand Seaver to the custody of the Sheriff on $500 cash bail or $1,000 bond.
