Ontario County Jail Inmate Accused of Violating Order of Protection


An inmate at the Ontario County Jail has been arrested on an aggravated family offense charge following an investigation into events that transpired last Friday in Pod 5 at the Ontario County Jail.

Russell Carlson was issued a stay-away order of protection from the Ontario County Court on May 10th where he was directed to have no contact, either direct or indirect, with the protected party except for a limited purpose of discussing the disposition of assets. The 45-year-old Canandaigua man is accused of interacting with the victim outside the scope of the order of protection limitations, resulting in a charge of criminal contempt.

Because Carlson was previously convicted of criminal contempt in July of 2021, the charge against him was upgraded to aggravated family offense.
