Jim Estes, a 47-year-old Harriman, was charged with criminal contempt for allegedly violating an ex parte order of protection. He was arrested on Nov. 15. According to the warrant, he was restricted from making contact with the petitioner and their two minor children.
Estes was allegedly trespassing at Bowers Elementary School trying to make contact with one of the children.
“This was witnessed by three school employees,” the warrant said. “Further, this affiant (Harriman Police Officer Jonathan T. Wood) learned that during each visit the defendant was told to stay off school property and he was in violation, which the defendant refused to cooperate.”
Estes, 448 Woolsey Road, is scheduled to appear in court on the criminal contempt charge in February.
