Massachusetts man’s no-contest plea accepted on 2nd try


WAKEFIELD — A Cambridge, Mass., man who believed he had a deal and was going to walk out of 4th Division District Court in May with a minimal sentence on Westerly police charges of disorderly conduct and simple assault before being surprised when the presiding judge, Frank J. Cenerini, disagreed with the sanctions settled his case before a different judge Friday.

Henry Delmonico, 46, previously believed he had a deal with Westerly police on charges of disorderly conduct brought after an incident with a worker at the Weekapaug Inn. Delmonico was charged with rubbing up against a worker on two separate occasions as that employee opened windows in his room after he was summoned to do so. Town prosecutors suggested if Delmonico pleaded no contest, meaning he did not dispute the facts of the case, the charge would be filed.

A court file means if Delmonico stayed out of trouble for the next year, the charge would be expunged from his record. He would also have been issued a no-contact order with the worker and ordered not to trespass on the Inn’s property.

Judge Cenerini did not agree with the sentence and instead proposed Delmonico be sentenced to one year of probation, along with mental health screening and treatment if authorities felt it was appropriate and necessary. Delmonico withdrew his no-contest plea and the case was passed on for trial, with his next court date slated for Friday.

On Friday, Delmonico again entered a no-contest plea on the charge of simple assault, but this time it was accepted with an order that he stay away from the victim and not go to the Inn. The disorderly conduct charge was dismissed.
