KOSCIUSKO — A Syracuse man faces no felony charges in a September 2017 case related to intimidation and domestic battery.
Timothy Allen Dilley, 95 EMS D18A1 Lane, Syracuse, was originally charged with intimidation, domestic battery resulting in moderate bodily injury, pointing a firearm, and criminal recklessness, all level 6 felonies; and domestic battery and failure to appear, both class A misdemeanors.
The first five charges were dismissed, leaving Dilley to be charged with only failure to appear. A second case, related to battery resulting in bodily injury and invasion of privacy, both class A misdemeanors, was also dismissed.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Sept. 12, 2017, officers responded to a report of shots being fired at Dilley’s residence. A female subject told officers that she and two other subjects went to Dilley’s residence to obtain her personal items. The two subjects stayed outside while the female went into the residence.
According to the two subjects, Dilley left the residence with a shotgun and fired it over their heads. The female also said Dilley pointed a shotgun at her and hit her on the head with a wooden tool handle. Dilley admitted to police that he left his residence with a shotgun and fired it over the heads of two subjects. He denied hitting the female with a wooden tool handle and pointing a shotgun at her.
Dilley was sentenced to a year in the Kosciusko County Jail for the failure to appear charge. 305 days of that sentence was suspended.
