ALBION – Charles Sheets was sent to state prison today for five years after he assaulted a deputy in December.

Sheets, 49, has a prior felony for attempted assault of a police officer in Monroe County in 2004. He was charged with second-degree assault for the more recent case.

Orleans County Sheriff’s Deputy J.J. Cole responded to a domestic incident at Angevine Road on Dec. 28.  When Cole attempted to bring Sheets into custody, Sheets fought with the deputy, causing him an injury. Sheets also was charged with harassment and menacing for the domestic incident.

“You’re a self-centered, undisciplined, violent and a very dangerous man,” Orleans County Court Judge James Punch said during sentencing today.

Sheets was sentenced to five years in state prison, five years of probation after prison and his wife was issued an order of protection.
