QUEENSBURY — A Queensbury man pleaded guilty to felony criminal contempt Wednesday for an incident where he injured another person and violated an order of protection.

Michael W. Perrelli, 50, pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal contempt for a June 13 incident at a home on Upper Sherman Avenue.

Perrelli was accused of injuring a woman who has an order of protection against him, and damaging her property.

He was charged with felony criminal contempt and misdemeanor counts of assault and criminal mischief, according to the Warren County Sheriff's Office. He entered an Alford plea Wednesday, in which he did not admit the underlying allegations.

Warren County Judge John Hall put him on interim probation for a year and ordered substance abuse treatment. If he does well, he will be sentenced to a lengthier term of probation. If not he faces a jail or prison sentence.
