Moravia man who harassed his ex-wife repeatedly could spend 28 years in prison

A Moravia man faces up to 28 years in prison after repeatedly violating court orders to stay away from his ex-wife.

Raymond Decker, 57, was found guilty of six counts of aggravated family offense, which is a felony; as well as several counts of criminal contempt.

Acting District Attorney Brittany Grome Antonacci said in a news release that on one occasion Decker left a note on his ex-wife’s vehicle. On five other occasions he sent text messages to the victim.

Deliberations lasted under two hours.

“We are pleased with the jury’s verdict and commend them for the time and consideration they gave listening to and reviewing the evidence throughout the trial,” Grome Antonacci said. “We hope that this conviction provides the victim with justice and allows her to continue to heal after a lengthy ordeal with the defendant. We understand that it takes a great deal of strength to come forward, especially as a victim of domestic violence.”

Sentencing is slated for January 5, 2023.
