Cazenovia Alleged Cazenovia ‘exercise stalker’ Daryl T. Anthony will be home for Christmas. He is out of the Madison County Jail on bail and scheduled to return to Cazenovia Town Court on March 5.
His case, in fact, was almost settled during his court appearance on Dec. 18, when the district attorney’s office offered Anthony a plea deal of 60 days in jail and three year’s probation, which would cover not only the one charge against him but any similar charges in the case in which he allegedly stalked 10 women in the town of Cazenovia. This deal was offered even though Anthony’s court-ordered mental competency exam had not taken place and was not scheduled to occur until mid-January.
“We may be premature, counselors,” Town Justice Timothy A. Moore said to Assistant District Attorney Robert A. Mascari and Public Defender David E. Sonn. “I want that examination completed first.”
Anthony was arrested Dec. 10 on one charge of criminal nuisance in the second degree, a class B misdemeanor, the result of him allegedly following approximately 10 adult women while they exercised in the town of Cazenovia on West Lake, East Lake, Chard, Ridge and Lincklaen roads between June and October of this year. He is alleged to have been driving his orange 2008 Hyundai Accent during this incidents, and that he drove with the rear hatch open in order to obscure his rear license plate. According to the charges, Anthony was allegedly performing a lewd act while he followed the women in his car.
Anthony was arraigned in Cazenovia Village Court before Acting Justice Patrick J. O’Sullivan on Dec. 10, during which Anthony was appointed a public defender, ordered that he undergo a mental competency exam before his Dec. 18 court appearance and orders of protection were issued against him on behalf of four of the alleged stalking victims. Anthony was ordered held in Madison County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond bail.
