It reportedly showed that again the suspect drove by the victim’s house, sometimes several times in a day. He also would allegedly drive to her job and call her numerous times in a day-always allegedly trying to make visual and verbal contact. Defense attorney Patrick Cafferty said in court that there are no allegations that Ruffolo used weapons, or threatened force or sexual assault.  Ruffolo was arrested Tuesday. He’s charged with a felony and could spend a year and a half in prison, two years extended supervision, and a 10-thousand dollar fine if convicted. He’s next due in court on August 25th.
