QUEENSBURY — A Queensbury man who was arrested on two felony charges earlier this year after he was found to have violated an order of protection has pleaded guilty to one count.

Angus A. Wilson, 46, pleaded guilty to aggravated family offense in connection with a domestic dispute in Queensbury in March.

He was charged with counts of first-degree criminal contempt and aggravated family offense after the Warren County Sheriff's Office received a call from someone asking officers to check on the welfare of a woman at a home on Stevens Road, officials said.

Wilson was found to be at the home in violation of an order of protection, resulting in a criminal contempt charge that was elevated to a felony because he had a prior conviction for misdemeanor criminal contempt, according to the Sheriff's Office. He was charged in a similar case in 2018.

The former charge will be dropped as part of a plea deal. Wilson was placed on interim probation for a year, and faces a lengthier term of probation if he does well. If not, he faces a jail or prison term.
