WARSAW, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man who wrote letters to his girlfriend while she was in the Wyoming County Jail has been arrested.

Deputies took 46-year-old Lynn Wilson of Silver Springs into custody on Wednesday and charged him with three counts of second degree criminal contempt.

After a domestic violence incident, an order of protection was issued barring Wilson from contacting his girlfriend. Deputies say Wilson was mailing her handwritten letters while she was behind bars in the Wyoming County Jail.

He’s due in court in March.
