They Had Stay-Away Orders

East Hampton Town police last week charged two men with second-degree criminal contempt, a misdemeanor, alleging they violated court-imposed orders of protection.

Keith King of East Quogue, 54, was arrested on Feb. 7 shortly before 5 p.m. after he allegedly violated a Suffolk County First District Court-issued order of protection that had been in place since October. According to a report, he was spotted in the front seat of a 2002 Mini Cooper, along with a passenger whom police did not identify, while parked on Wainscott-Northwest Road near Knoll Lane in Wainscott. Mr. King was arraigned the next day in East Hampton Town Justice Court, where Justice Lisa R. Rana imposed supervised release.

Franklin V. Nasqui-Chuquiguanga of East Hampton Village, 34, was arrested on the same charge on the morning of Feb. 6. During a traffic stop on Old Northwest Road near Cedar Street here, initiated for what police said was an expired inspection sticker, Mr. Nasqui-Chuquiguanga was a passenger in the car with a person whom he was not permitted to see. Justice Rana, who had issued the order of protection in November, imposed supervised release for him as well.
