Contempt charges lead to jail time

JOHNSTOWN – Two local men will be facing jail time when they are sentenced for pleading guilty to contempt charges in Fulton County Court.

Jason W. Wagoner of 54 Forest St., Gloversville, who was 28 when he was arrested in September, pleaded guilty in Fulton County Court on Feb. 27 to a single count of criminal contempt, a felony.

Under a plea arrangement, he is expected to receive 1 1/2 to 3 years in prison when he is sentenced by Judge Richard C. Giardino as a second felony offender on May 21.

Wagoner was initially charged with criminal contempt, attempted assault and disorderly conduct after Gloversville police responded to a call about Wagoner beating a woman. The investigation revealed he’d knocked her down to the pavement and was holding her down.

  • Randall R. Vose, whose age and address are not available, pleaded guilty in county court before Giardino on Jan. 16 to one criminal count of criminal contempt after Gloversville police said he threatened a victim and violated an order of protection in August.

Vose originally was charged with criminal contempt, criminal trespass, criminal tampering and obstructing government administration.

Under terms of a plea arrangement, he is expected to receive one year in the Fulton County Jail and a new order of protection when he is sentenced March 31.
