TOWN OF LEE, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office reports that a man who was released on NYS Bail Reform laws was arrested twice on September 27th after violating an order of protection.

Around 6:00 pm on Tuesday, officers arrived at a residence in the Town of Lee to investigate a domestic violence incident. Once the scene, they learned that 37-year-old Jerry A. Lohr allegedly physically harmed his wife in front of their two children, ages 5 and 9, and then left.
