A Geneva man could spend upwards of 30 years behind bars after being convicted on a number of domestic violence charges.
District Attorney Jim Ritts says Marco Almonte, 45, was found guilty in Ontario County Court on felony charges of kidnapping, strangulation, and criminal contempt.
He was also convicted of a misdemeanor assault charge. Almonte was accused of strangling and assaulting a woman in her home.
He was indicted last summer, and is scheduled to be sentenced on July 5. He could face up to 32 years in prison due to being a persistent felony offender. Federal prosecutors could also enter the equation and prosecute him for violating parole conditions.
