Guilty plea on harassment admitted in City Court
A 50-year-old man admitted Monday to harassing his landlord over a two month period, leading up to a threatening confrontation at his River Street residence.
Michael D. Markowitz, of 155 River St., pleaded guilty before City Court Judge Daniel C. Wilson to second-degree harassment, reduced from aggravated harassment, and fourth-degree mischief. Charges of second-degree harassment and second-degree aggravated harassment were dismissed. His cases were adjourned for sentencing to July 1.
Police said from Sept. 1 to 20, and then again from Oct. 7 to 14, Markowitz repeatedly telephoned his landlord and threatened to kill him.
Police said from Oct. 1 to 14, Markowitz also damaged the baseboard heating covers at his residence and then threw the metal covers out the window. Police said Markowitz also punched through an upstairs window with his fist.
When his landlord went to confront him on Oct. 14, police said Markowitz got right in the landlord’s face and threatened to kill him.
