A no-bail warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Toledo man who allegedly violated a protection order issued for a domestic violence victim.
Levi Gary Hunt was convicted on three domestic violence charges on Dec. 9, 2020, after he allegedly hit a woman and damaged her property. As part of his sentence, Lewis County Superior Court issued a protection order against Hunt, prohibiting him from making any contact with the victim for five years.
On Jan. 18, 2021, the protected party reported that she had received messages from Hunt on Dec. 29, Jan. 13 and Jan. 18 — all in violation of the protection order.
“She advised that Hunt had made numerous comments about apologizing for his actions and attempting to get in contact with her,” according to court documents.
At the time, Hunt had been lodged at the Lewis County Jail on an unrelated matter, according to court documents, and allegedly admitted to officers that he had initiated contact with the protected party on those three dates.
Hunt was issued a court summons for an April 13 preliminary appearance in Lewis County Superior Court, but did not appear.
