State inmate charged with nine felonies for contacting victim
Last week, state police arrested Smith, 35, and charged him with nine counts of felony aggravated family offense for contacting the victim from prison. If convicted, Smith will likely see more time added to his prison term. Smith, of Arcade, had repeatedly violated orders of protection in 2019 and 2020. He was sentenced in March 2020 to 1 1/3 to four years in prison for aggravated family offense.
Smith was indicted in July of 107 counts of aggravated family offense, just before he was transferred to state prison. He later pleaded guilty to five counts of aggravated family offense. Smith remains in state prison pending an appearance in Wyoming County Court. Courtesy Batavia News.com
