On November 7th, 2021, at approximately 6:30pm, Deputy Cheyenne Masiello investigated the report of a possible violation of an order of protection that allegedly took place earlier on the same date at an address on Caledonia-Avon Road (State Route 5), in the Town of Caledonia.
The investigation alleges that 30-year-old, Shawn A. Morris, of Caledonia, had been involved in a physical confrontation with a female individual who was a protected party in an active “refrain from” order of protection placed against Morris. The incident also took place in the presence of a juvenile who was also a protected party in the “refrain from” order of protection placed against Morris.
Morris was arrested and charged with felony Criminal Contempt in the First Degree, Criminal Contempt in the Second Degree, Harassment in the Second Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
Morris was transported and 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 Morris be held on $1,500 cash or $3,000 credit/secured bond.
Morris was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Town of York Justice Thomas Porter. The Judge did remand Morris to the custody of the Sheriff, setting bail at $150 cash or $300 credit/secured bond.
The Livingston County Public Defender’s Office was present and represented Morris at the court arraignment for his defense. The Livingston County District Attorney’s Office was notified but did not appear to represent the people.
Assisting with the investigation for the Sheriff’s Office was Deputy Justin Hilt and Deputy Michael Telesca.
