On January 7, 2014 at 9:44 a.m., Deputy Sheriff William Quick responded to a report of a physical dispute in progress at 2975 Route 9 in the Town of Philipstown. Upon arrival, the deputy met with the complainant, who stated that she had been verbally and physically abused by her son, identified as Taylor M. Kendrick, 18, of that address.

On January 8, 2014 at approximately 1530 hours, the deputy responded to the Town of Philipstown Justice Court, where Mr. Kendrick had appeared on an unrelated matter. The deputy arrested Mr. Kendrick and charged him with Criminal Contempt in the Second Degree, a misdemeanor; Unlawful Imprisonment in the Second Degree, a misdemeanor; and Harassment in the Second Degree, a violation. The defendant was arraigned on location by Town of Philipstown Justice Stephen Tomann and committed to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $1,500.00 cash bail or $3,000.00 bond pending a February 14, 2014 appearance to answer the charges.
If found guilty of the misdemeanor charges, the defendant could face up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.00 for each charge.
