An Ulster County man was charged Wednesday with stalking and other crimes after he called a woman repeatedly in a single day while she had orders of protection against him, police said.
Anthony B. Dearaujo, 22, of Main Street in Napanoch, was charged with fourth-degree stalking, second-degree aggravated harassment and second-degree criminal contempt, all misdemeanors, the Ulster County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.
Dearaujo contacted a Rosendale woman by phone 29 times throughout Tuesday, police said, leaving voice and text messages although she had two no-contact orders against him, one issued by Rosendale Town Court and the other by Ulster County Family Court, police said.
The protection orders were issued after Dearaujo was arrested by Ulster deputies March 6 on charges of harassment and endangering the welfare of a child, police said.
Dearaujo turned himself in to deputies Wednesday morning. He was arraigned before Esopus Town Court Justice Elizabeth Shanley-Manicone and sent to Ulster County Jail in Kingston in lieu of $10,000 bail. No further information on his court appearance or legal representation was available Thursday.
