ITHACA, N.Y. – An Ithaca woman was indicted in Tompkins County Court on Thursday morning after it was reported that she had been violating an order of protection for months, records say.
Emily Sosna, 37, was indicted after Cornell University Police placed her under arrest for violating the order of protection, which was served in January.
Sosna was charged separately for three different occasions over the span of six months. The indictment stated that on January 23, January 24 and June 12, Sosna had “intentionally engaged in a course of conduct directed at such person which was likely to cause such person to reasonably fear physical injury, the commission of a sex offense against, or the kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment or death of such person or a member of their immediate family.”
Sosna was indicted with three counts of first-degree criminal contempt and one count of third-degree stalking.
Sosna is due to appear before County Court Judge John C. Rowley for arraignment on Friday at 2:25 p.m.
