Anderson charged in second trespassing case
A pair of criminal cases involving Winter Park resident Clifford Anderson will soon be headed back to court.
Anderson is scheduled to appear for arraignment before Grand County Court Judge Nick Catanzarite on Monday, Feb. 13, on two criminal trespassing cases and one traffic case, which occurred in Oct. 2016. The Sky-Hi News previously reported on one of the two trespassing cases Anderson is facing and recently obtained an affidavit related to the other trespassing case from the Grand County Court Clerk’s Office.
The alleged trespassing incident occurred around Nov. 28 -29, according to the affidavit. On Dec. 20, an officer from the Granby Police Department took a report about the incident from a resident of Christensen Avenue in Granby.
According to the affidavit the reporting party (RP) was at home at around 11 a.m. the day of the trespass when she her heard her dogs barking. The RP exited her bedroom, which is located at the top of the residence’s stairs. At the bottom of the stairs she noticed a man in her living room. The affidavit states the RP asked the man what he was doing inside the home to which he replied, “I’m sorry, did I wake you? I’m here to meet the Hermes. I must have the wrong house.”
The RP was acquainted with the man whom she identified as Cliff Anderson and noted Anderson had taken his shoes off and, “appeared agitated and nervous”.
Anderson was formally charged with First Degree Criminal Trespassing over the incident in late Jamuary. It is the second criminal trespassing case Anderson is currently facing. He was charged with two counts of First Degree Criminal Trespassing on Dec. 28, over a pair incidents that occurred in the Winter Park area on Dec. 21.
Anderson was previously scheduled for arraignment in his first trespassing case for Monday, Jan. 23; the same day formal charges for his second trespassing case were filed. For various reasons that arraignment was continued to next Monday when Anderson is set to appear for all three cases.
The charges against Anderson are merely accusations and all suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
