MOUNT MORRIS — David Homer, of Livingston County Taser fame, has struck a deal with the County District Attorney’s office agreeing to time served and a 5-year restraining order barring him from contact with his girlfriend, Cynthia Gledhill.
Drama unfolded during court procedures, however, as Gledhill herself protested the restraining order, and sobbed and pleaded with Judge Wiggins and Livingston County District Attorney Greg McCaffrey.
“Over the last four months police have been called numerous times. It’s a waste of police resources to go there repeatedly,” said McCaffrey.
The December 11 incident which originally placed Homer in jail was a result of a violation of an earlier restraining order between Homer and Gledhill. In that incident, in Mt. Morris, he allegedly assaulted and threatened to kill Gledhill, who was, and apparently still is, his on-and-off girlfriend.
Gledhill eventually recanted her statement in that matter and stated she would not testify against her boyfriend. In court, Homer admitted that he had grabbed her jacket during the argument in December.
If he violates the new restraining order, Homer could face a lengthy term in state prison.
