CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – A Buffalo man was sentenced to one year in jail Monday after violating a court order.

Robert Boyer, 49, of Zelmer Street was sentenced by Cheektowaga Town Judge Paul Piotrowski with his guilty plea to Criminal Contempt according to a Cheektowaga Police news release.

Boyer was arrested by Cheektowaga Police in November, 2016 after he violated an Order of Protection from the Cheektowaga Town Court ordering Boyer to stay away from his girlfriend.

He showed up at a former girlfriend’s home on William Street on three different occasions.

He was charged with three counts of Criminal Contempt and one count of Harassment after he physically accosted his former girlfriend during one of his contacts with her.   

Judge Piotrowski imposed the maximum sentence on Boyer because of his physically aggressive behavior in connection with the conviction together with five prior convictions for Criminal Contempt, refusing to obey a Judge’s order.
