Allegedly harassed mom who had protective order against him
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department last week arrested a Philipstown teenager on charges of domestic violence following allegations of a volatile dispute with his mother.
According to a Sheriff’s Department news release, the incident began on Tuesday, Jan. 7, when Deputy Sheriff William Quick responded to a report of a serious altercation underway at 2975 Route 9, Philipstown. At the scene, the mother, not named by the Sheriff’s Department, told Quick that her son had physically and verbally abused her and fled, fearing arrest for violating a protective order she had previously obtained against him.
The following day, Quick arrested the suspect, Taylor M. Kendrick, of Philipstown, when Kendrick appeared in the Philipstown Justice Court in regard to another, unrelated matter. Kendrick was charged with second-degree harassment, a violation, and two misdemeanors – second-degree criminal contempt and second-degree unlawful imprisonment.
Justice Stephen Tomann of the Philipstown court arraigned Kendrick on the spot and Kendrick was sent to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $1,500 cash bail or a $3,000 bond. He is expected back in court on Feb. 14 to answer the charges. If convicted, he could be jailed for up to a year and fined $1,000 for each charge.
