A protection from abuse (PFA) violation will cost a Warren man another 90 days to six months behind bars.
Francis J. Notoro, 25, Warren County Jail, who pleaded not guilty last month to a host of charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, rape of a child, simple assault, endangering the welfare of a child and indecent assault stemming from an incident where he allegedly sexually assaulted a two-month-old child, was found guilty of the protection from abuse order violation by President Judge Maureen Skerda on Monday afternoon.
The violation comes with an additional 90 days to six months of jail time, according to the public defender's office. Notoro could face over 80 years if convicted on the other charges.
A Sept. 5 release from the City of Warren police said that police charged Notoro with the PFA violation after he made a phone call from jail to a known female who the PFA prohibited him from contacting.
The charges Notoro still faces stem from a July 15 incident in which personnel at Warren General Hospital reported suspicious injuries to an infant brought to the facility by Notoro. Injuries consisted of questionable bruising and abrasions on various parts of the child's body, including the genital area. In preliminary court proceedings on the matter, Dr. David McConnell said the injuries were consistent with bite marks.
Notoro is accused of committing oral sexual acts on the child as a result of further investigation into the injuries.
