ALBANY, N.Y.—An Albany man was sentenced to seven years in State Prison on Wednesday.
Kaseim Parrish, 24, pleaded guilty to one count of Aggravated Criminal Contempt.
In July 2013, Parrish was ordered to adhere to a No Contact Order of Protection that kept him from contacting an individual known to him. Parrish violated these conditions on multiple occasions.
On December 5, 2013, Parrish went to the victim's residence and strangled her to the point of almost losing consciousness. He then went back to her residence on December 16, 2013 and threatened to kill her.
Additionally, on December 17, 2013, Parrish broke down the front door of the victim's residence and began to argue with her. When the victim called 911, Parrish grabbed the phone from her hand and left the residence. Finally, on January 18, 2014, Parrish further violated the No Contact Order of Protection by calling the victim on her phone and said he would go to her residence and threatened to kill her.
When Parrish pleaded guilty, he was informed by the court that he would receive a term of incarceration of 2 1/3 to 7 years in State Prison if he followed the conditions of his guilty plea.
At sentencing, Parrish repeatedly failed to accept responsibility for his crime and was found by the court to be in violation of the conditions of his guilty plea. The court then sentenced Parrish to the maximum sentence allowed.
