Lisandro Torres, 33, of 212 Arlington St., left apartment, was charged by Watertown police about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday with first-degree criminal contempt.
It is alleged that he was observed at 162 N. Meadow St. talking with and hugging Jessica F. West, who holds a Jefferson County Court order of protection against him. He is due to answer the charge in City Court.
Mr. Torres was sentenced in February in County Court to five years probation after he pleaded guilty to felony criminal contempt. The conviction stemmed from an incident last July in which he grabbed Ms. West and pushed her up against a wall.
