Insanity plea entered in phone calling case
WARREN A 66-year-old Newton Falls man remained in Trumbull County Jail after a judge earlier Monday set a bond of $25,000 for the man, who often has been arrested for calling authorities without having an emergency to report.
Rudy Domyanich Jr., of Randall Drive, had been held in jail when his bond was revoked shortly after he was indicted in March with five counts of telecommunications harassment.
The latest indictments accuse Domyanich of calling mostly the Ohio State Highway Patrol with an emergency to report on Jan. 8, 16, 24 and Feb. 12 and 7 this year. He has seven previous convictions for the same charge dating back to 2000, including three convictions last year.
An attorney for the man entered a plea Monday of not guilty by reason of insanity.
