AGGRAVATED HARASSMENT - MASSENA - Village police charged Heather M. Kirby. 27, of 92 state Route 345, Potsdam, with aggravated harassment at 3:46 p.m. Saturday after she reportedly made 41 phone calls to her ex-boyfriend and father of her 1-year-old child between 1:51 p.m. and 3:31 p.m. p.m. Saturday and then went to his 16 Linden St. residence, kicked the door several times and yelled and screamed.

Shawn Nicol said he has answered a few of the calls and Kirby told him she was going to kill him and his new girlfriend, Holly Snyder, and dance on their graves. He said the calls had continued after Kirby had been directed to stop calling him after an initial complaint had been lodged by Ms. Snyder.

Kirby was arraigned by Acting Massena Village Justice James M. Crandall and released under the supervision of the probation department pending an appearance Tuesday in village court. The court also signed a temporary order of protection directed Kirby to stay away from Mr. Nicol and Ms. Snyder and stipulating that child visitation exchanges must be arranged through a third party.

SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY - CANTON - St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department deputies charged Timothy S. Middlemiss, 23, of 143 Fulton Road, Lisbon, with failure to provide the New York State Sex Offender Registry with a change of address, a class E felony. In New York state, sex offenders are required to report a change of address within 10 days of moving.

It is alleged Middlemiss moved in October 2012 from his registered address to an apartment in Morley without notifying the Sex Offender Registry within the 10 days required by law. Middlemiss was arraigned in Canton Town Court and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $2,000 cash or $4,000 bond.

Middlemiss was sentenced to one to three years for a second-degree attempted rape conviction. He entered prison on March 2, 2010 and was released under parole supervision on Aug. 31, 2012. He is classified as a Level III sex offender, the classification for offenders viewed as being a high risk to commit another sex crime.

A St. Lawrence County grand jury had handed up a sealed indictment opened in late April 2009 charging him with second-degree rape, second-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. Middlemiss later admitted he attempted to have sexual contact with a 12-year-old female on Jan. 22, 2009 in the town of Madrid.

Middlemiss, formerly of Fulton Road, Lisbon, was fined $500 and a $125 surcharge and sentenced to time served in January 2012 in Massena Town Court for a third-degree sexual abuse conviction.

He had been charged with third-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

That incident took place while the rape count was pending in county court.
