The Wales, New York Town Court has issued an order of protection against New York State Senate candidate and former East Aurora Mayor David J. DiPietro.

DiPietro was arraigned on second-degree harassment that was filed by Anne Leary, a village resident, on April 7, 2008.

April 7th was the final day of DiPietro’s term as mayor. The incident allegedly occurred when Leary was in the village offices to pay her water bill. Leary claims that DiPietro approached her that day and said “Anne Leary, you are one person who has a lot of nerve coming here”. According to the report he then threatened her by saying “You’ve undermined everything I’ve tried to do. You are going to get what’s coming to you”. Leary also claims that DiPietro cursed at her and further told police that there were village staffers who were present and heard the altercation.
