Orland man pleads guilty in domestic case

An Orland man was given a two year sen­tence Mon­day fol­low­ing a domes­tic dis­tur­bance involv­ing a weapon last March.

51-year-old Arthur Thomas Palus entered a guilty plea in Steuben Supe­rior Court on Octo­ber 5th to a level 6 felony of point­ing a firearm as part of a plea agree­ment with prosecutors.

One year of the sen­tence was sus­pended by Judge William Fee and Palus was placed on pro­ba­tion for a year.

He was given credit for two days already served and a no con­tact order was entered on behalf of the victim.

In exchange for the guilty plea, a level five felony of intim­i­da­tion was dis­missed by prosecutors.

Steuben County Court doc­u­ments stated that Palus threat­ened the woman with a loaded shot­gun dur­ing the dispute.
