Liberty man charged with assault in domestic incident

LIBERTY – A 20-year-old Liberty man has been charged in connection with a domestic dispute in the Village of Liberty.

Police charged Mario Molina with assault in the third degree and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, a misdemeanor.

That is based on a new law that was instituted last November, which makes it a crime to strangle someone.

Molina was arrested after police responded to a call for a domestic dispute at an apartment building on Ontario Street.

He was arraigned and sent to the Sullivan County Jail in lieu of $1,500 bail.
