On March 16th, 2021, Troopers out of SP Jamestown arrested Gary Lawton, 59, of Salamanca, for Criminal Contempt 2nd Degree.
The Troopers and Cattaraugus County Deputies responded to a residence in Randolph for a report of an unwanted guest. Upon arrival the responding units interviewed both parties, and it was determined that Lawton was at the victim’s residence in violation of a stay-away order directing Lawton to avoid all contact with the victim. Lawton was placed under arrest, transported to SP Jamestown and processed. Lawton was released with an appearance ticket at the recommendation of the Cattaraugus County District Attorney’s Office and is scheduled to appear in the town of Randolph Court on a later date.
