NEW MILFORD — Being jailed didn’t stop one 22-year-old man from violating the protection order a New Milford woman had against him, police charge.
Ricardo A. Rojas didn’t appear in state Superior Court in Bantam Oct. 5, but his case did. Rojas couldn’t make it to court because he has been in Bridgeport Correctional Center since March 21 in lieu of a combined $110,000 bond.
Ricardo A. Rojas is charged with calling a woman 40 times in late March and April from the Bridgeport Correctional Center, where he has been held since March 21 in lieu of a combined $110,000 bond. The woman had a no-contact order against him. He also sent her a letter, court documents said.
The 22-year-old had already been charged with violating a protective order in Danbury, violating an order in Newtown, and violating another order in Monroe. All are felony charges to which he has plead not guilty.
Although he called the New Milford woman 40 times, he only spoke to her three times, documents said. Each time, he begged her to give him more money so he could make some more phone calls.
His next court date is Oct. 13.
