The courts encouraged a Canandaigua man to get the help he needs while serving a state prison sentence for head-butting a woman and violating an order of protection.
On Wednesday, Ontario County Court Judge Kitty Karle sentenced Daniel Sims, 26, to two and one-third to seven years for two counts of first-degree aggravated family offense and first-degree aggravated contempt.
“It’s evident that Mr. Sims had a tough childhood and a rough life,” said Assistant Public Defender Patrick Conklin. “Mr. Sims recognizes he needs help and my hope is that he gets the help he needs while incarcerated.”
According to Ontario County District Attorney James Ritts, Sims was initially arrested in 2018 on one count of aggravated family offense and aggravated criminal contempt. Sims picked up an additional aggravated family offense charge this year.
