A judge has denied the motion of the Windsor selectboard chair in his release conditions. Justin Ciccarelli was charged earlier this month with aggravated assault against his former fiancee in their residence and stood in court again Thursday, hoping to hear the judge’s decision on his appeal that would allow him to see his former fiancee.
Court records say that during his arraignment on May 6th, the presiding judge ordered that Cicarrelli not make contact with her or go near her.
The victim, who was allegedly strangled and assaulted by Cicarrelli earlier this month, was in favor of the motion, as she wanted to see if their relationship could continue. However, the court denied the motion, based on the serious allegations against him in this case and that the restrictions are to protect the public.
According to The Eagle Times, Cicarrelli is still the standing Windsor selectboard chair but could face up to 15 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines if convicted.
His next hearing date is set for June 21st at Windsor Superior Court.
