CHAUMONT A woman who has filed suit against a Jefferson County sheriffs detective was arrested Friday morning by the Sheriffs Department and jailed.
Raven C. Carreira, 26, of 314 Gotham St., Watertown, was arrested by sheriffs deputies on a charge of second-degree criminal trespass at a residence in the town of Lyme. She was arraigned before Lyme Town Justice Robin J. Curtis, who sent her to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, Watertown, setting bail at $1,500.
Ms. Carreira at 5:35 a.m. Friday allegedly entered through a rear window the home of James J. Randall, 8540 Route 12E, and ignored numerous orders to leave, according to the sheriffs office.
Mr. Randall, a deputy sheriff, is Ms. Carreiras former boyfriend. She, meanwhile, recently filed a defamation-of-character lawsuit against Detective Steven C. Cote, alleging that he told a third party that Ms. Carreira put a threat out against Mr. Randall.
She is serving a sentence of five years probation given her in March in Jefferson County Court for felony aggravated driving while intoxicated.
