LOCKPORT – A man who was accused of violating a woman’s restraining order against him four times pleaded guilty to two felonies to settle the cases Tuesday.

Antiwon J. Dunmeyer, 33, of 15th Street, Buffalo, a former Niagara Falls resident, pleaded guilty to aggravated and first-degree criminal contempt. Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas promised him concurrent sentencing, thus capping his prison time at seven years. Sentence will be passed Jan. 17, and Dunmeyer, who admitted to violating the order April 18 and Oct. 9, remains in jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Assistant District Attorney Lisa M. Baehre said Dunmeyer was arrested three times for violating the order of protection, twice involving assaults on the woman, who let him live with her in Niagara Falls as he was recovering from having a heart pacemaker implanted. Baehre said charges also were to be filed in connection with threatening phone calls to the woman from jail.
