Police: Seneca Falls man violated protective order twice within hours

On Sunday, March 15th at 12:24 a.m., police arrested Steven J. Sinicropi, 58, of Seneca Falls.

The arrest stems from a domestic incident which Sinicropi violated a Class A Order of Protection by being in the immediate presence of the protected party.

He was charged with Criminal Contempt in the Second Degree, a class A misdemeanor.

Police say Sinicropi was processed and transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility where he awaits arraignment.

On Sunday at 10:35 a.m. police arrested Sinicropi again. It was the second in less than 12 hours after he failed to comply with a court order of protection.
Police accompanied the Seneca County Child Protective Services to Sinicropi’s home address while they followed up on last night’s arrest.
After the arrest last night, Sinicropi was processed and transported to the Seneca County Centralized Arraignment Court, where he was released. While at home this morning, police observed Sinicropi inside, a specific condition that was against the order.
Police charged Sinicropi with another count of criminal contempt in the second degree, a class A misdemeanor. He was transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility to await arraignment.
