Man Arrested For Marrying Woman He’s Barred From Seeing

by | 12th, August 2008

TIMOTHY T. Cole, 45, of 16 Walnut St. Batavia, has married the woman he is barred on pain of law from seeing.

Having been called to attend the scene of rowing, police found Cole “in an altercation with a guest over a chair”.

The groom was taken in. A check and police discovered that his new wife had filed an order of protection against him less than six weeks before their wedding.

Cole was charged with second-degree criminal contempt July 1, meaning that he violated a previous court order.

The July 1 order of protection required Cole to stay away from the woman he ended up marrying Friday. The order, which also mandated that he stay away from the woman’s home, school, business and place of employment, was to be in effect until July 1, 2011.

Because Cole violated that order of protection, he was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony offense. He was remanded to Genesee County Jail to be held without bail. He is scheduled to be back in court tomorrow at 1 p.m. His wife was not charged with anything, police said.

Such is the law…
