A Court Order was subsequently issued, requiring Wise to complete the process with officers. Again, Wise repeatedly refused to cooperative in direction violation of the Court Order. Wise was subsequently charged with criminal contempt for his failure to provide the required information.
Wise, who is currently incarcerated in the Yates County Jail, was issued an appearance ticket and will answer the charge in Penn Yan Village Court at a later date.
