PLAINVILLE - A Farmington man accused of threatening a Plainville woman and her family, and then violating a court order 14 times that prohibited him from contacting the victim, has been granted a program that will spare him prosecution.
Dylan Magee, 48, was enrolled into the Family Violence Education Program on Wednesday, during a hearing in Bristol Superior Court. He is facing 14 counts of violation of a protective order and one count each of second-degree threatening, disorderly conduct and third-degree criminal mischief.
Should Magee complete a number of domestic violence classes and comply with any other recommendations made by the court’s Family Relations Office, his charges will be dismissed next February, or possibly sooner.
According to police, Magee was first arrested on Sept. 4, after his ex-girlfriend’s home alarm went off at about 1:02 a.m. Officers responded and found that Magee had allegedly smashed the home’s window with a shovel. He had called the woman hours earlier and said he wanted his belongings and money from the home. He then allegedly said he was going to burn her house down.
While in custody, police said, Magee threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend and said he would assault some of her family members. He also, police allege, said he would “take five of my Diablo friends there and threaten her.”
Shortly after being released from custody, police allege, Magee made phone contact with his ex-girlfriend 14 times. The calls, the document continued, spanned from 2:30 p.m. until about 10:30 p.m.
