Davenport Man Arrested for Contempt of Court, Endangering the Welfare of a Child

Written By Editor on 11/22/20 | 11/22/20

Today, Sheriff Craig S. DuMond announced that the violation of an order of protection in the Town of Davenport has resulted in a Davenport man being charged with criminal contempt of court and endangering the welfare of a child.  


On Sunday, November 8, 2020, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Town of Davenport where it was reported that 65-year-old Jack Burgess, of Davenport, NY, had been engaging in on-going communications and the exchange of images with a child victim in violation of the terms of an order of protection issued by the court for the protection of that child.  That order of protection was issued as a part of the disposition of an endangering the welfare of a child charge filed against the Burgess in April of this year.


Upon the conclusion of their investigation, on Tuesday afternoon, November 10, 2020, Sheriff’s Deputies located, arrested and charged Burgess with criminal contempt of court and endangering the welfare of a child.


Speaking on the arrest, Sheriff Craig DuMond remarked, “Due to New York State Bail Reform legislation, Deputies were once again mandated to release Burgess on appearance tickets…another bail reform success story.  Something tells me this 2nd appearance ticket will not change his behavior…it will probably only get worse and just create further victim(s)”.  Burgess is directed to appear in the Town of Davenport Court on a later date to answer these charges.
