Cheektowaga man heading back to jail for violating order

A 26-year-old Cheektowaga man who spent several months in jail because of unwanted attention to a young woman is heading back behind bars for the same reason.

Zachary Julius, of Sprucewood Drive, was sentenced Monday by Town Justice Paul Piotrowski to 60 days in jail and three years of probation after pleading guilty to a charge of criminal contempt, according to town police.

Last September, Julius was arrested by town police after repeatedly making contact with a young woman at her place of employment. He subsequently was sentenced to nine months in jail for forcible touching, police said.

There never had been any type of relationship between the two, police noted.

An order of protection had been issued, forbidding Julius from having any contact with the victim. Julius violated that order as soon as he was released from jail, resulting in the criminal contempt charge, police said.
