Mitchell M. Selapack

PORTAGE – An October investigation into a domestic incident on Springbrook Road has resulted in a felony gun charge for a Portage man, reports the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.

Mitchell M. Selapack, 30, was allegedly in possession of a 9mm pistol for which he did not have a permit to carry or possess in New York, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Selapack was arrested Dec. 6 and charged with criminal possession of a firearm, a class E felony.

The investigation began about 6 p.m. Oct. 26 when Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a report of an active domestic dispute.

Following his arrest, Selapack was turned over to Central Booking deputies and Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted due to the felony-level charges and recommended that Selapack be released on his own recognizance as the charge does not qualify for bail under the state Justice Reform Act.

Selapack was later arraigned at Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part at Livingston County Jail before Town of York Justice Dan Koch, who released Selapack on his own recognizance. He is due back in court at a later date.

The Livingston County Public Defender’s Office represented Selapack at his arraignment. The District Attorney’s Office was notified, but did not appear at the arraignment.

Assisting with the on-scene investigation for the Sheriff’s Office were Deputies Dylan Bowser and Jerry Pilkenton, under the command of Sgt. Caleb Cutting.
