BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A 21-year-old Williamsville man was sentenced to three-years probation Friday morning, according to the Erie County District Attorney.

Christian R. McCaffrey pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree on Aug. 4, 2022. As part of his plea, he was issued a final no-contact order of protection on behalf of the victim and their family.

Between Aug. 16, 2019 and Dec. 21, 2019, McCaffrey intentionally harassed a victim through phone calls and text messages.

McCaffrey’s codefendant, 29-year-old Dino A. Bruscia, was indicted for his alleged involvement in a separate crime that involved the same victim. Bruscia is charged with one count of arson in the third degree.

On December 22, 2019, Bruscia allegedly fired a flare into the victim’s Amherst home. The arson caused damage to the victim’s dining room.

Bruscia is scheduled to return to court on April 3, 2023 for a jury trial. He was released on his own recognizance as the charge in non-qualifying for bail and a temporary order of protection remains in place on behalf of the victim and his family.

If convicted of the highest charge, Bruscia faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.
