Judge isn't named in the Sheriff's press release, but the bail seems pretty low. But doesn't the DAs office weigh in on the amount of the bail/bond?


Sheriff: Waterloo man choked, threatened to kill female during violent incident


06/20/2018 @ 12:07 pm

A Waterloo man was arrested on multiple felony charges after a violent domestic incident on Tuesday, according to Seneca County Sheriff Tim Luce.

On Tuesday at about 10:32 am investigators arrested Emerson J. Tohafjian, 48, of Waterloo on charges related to that violent incident, which happened in the Town of Fayette.

During the incident, it is alleged that Tohafjian repeatedly choked a female victim, threatened to kill her numerous times, and forcibly raped her. In addition, investigators say he caused injury to a cat by throwing a cat carrier with the animal inside.

Both the female victim and cat suffered minor injuries.

As a result of the investigation, Tohafjian was charged with the following:

– Rape in the First Degree, a Class B Felony;
– Unlawful Imprisonment in the First Degree, a Class E Felony;
– Criminal Obstruction of Breathing or Blood Circulation, a Class A Misdemeanor; and
– Cruelty to Animals, a Class A Misdemeanor.

Tohafjian was arraigned in the Fayette Town Court and remanded to the Seneca County Correctional Facility on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to reappear in the Fayette Town Court at a later date.

An Order of Protection was issued on behalf of the victim, according to investigators.

Sheriff’s Investigators were assisted by the Sheriff’s Office Road Patrol Division, New York State Police, and the Waterloo Police Department.


The Bail was only $500 for the incident 2 weeks before:

Jeff Hogue was the judge. No one will soon forget this.

Bet that judge followed the letter of New York State's liberal law.

I have been holding off to say this but you seem to be out of touch with reality.

Apparently, he could not double the bail, as the DA requested, but he certainly could have issued the bench warrant.

Bet he feels like an accomplice. Maybe a lot of people do.

Before flogging a public servant, the details should be flushed out.

Both women if they were able to come back, a "flogging" would be much better than eternal death. What's your stance on standing before a family who had to bury their love one averse to defending a family member who just happen to be a judge?

I question your motives when 2 families must grieve a love one's death while you get defensive over another's "reputation" Note: I was waiting for you to defend even the perpetrator since I called him a rapist and not a person accused of rape, since the laws in our country states that you are innocent until proven guilty. crazy
Once again Sir, your motives are questionable.

I have no dog in this fight and no motives to be served. I also haven't seen a transcript if the proceeding. I'm also very hesitant to blame a lowely town justice for this tragedy.

Hmmmmm,so your initial comment was a waste of my time seeing that you have no "fight" in the matter.

Funny that you still show empathy and compassion for the judge, yet no expressed heart felt sympathetic words toward the grieving families, maybe that's the reason your interjection elicit scorn. SMH
Once again, don't waste my time.

Your reactions to my comments are rather incendiary, and it would be unproductive to engage any further. Best of luck to you.

Just another Seneca county SNAFU.

Porsch asked the Varick court to issue a bench warrant. The Varick judge refused. That puts the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Varick court.

I take it you're an Ettman troll.

This is the real DAVID ETTMAN, Candidate for Seneca County Judge. It is not my intention to take the campaign to the Seneca County Forums. However, when something is posted directly about me, and it contains false or misleading information, I will provide the correct information.

Festus's post on July 22 mentions my name in conjunction with the recent bench warrant issue.

I have not been the Varick town judge since the end of my term in December 2017. I have had nothing to do with the Varick Court or any criminal justice matter since that time.

Thank you

DAVID ETTMAN

Now that you have explained that, you probably have my vote.
