Angela Montgomery, 50, was captured on CCTV violating a restraining order against her, appearing in front of her neighbor’s home. She had been convicted on May 16 for threatening behavior towards two people and was placed under a restraining order to protect them. Montgomery pleaded guilty to breaching the order in court and was deferred sentencing until June 18, 2024, with the condition that she avoids the cats and finds a new home. She was warned that failure to comply would result in jail time. The incident was the sixth breach of the order, occurring just a day after she was released from prison for a burglary charge. The court heard that Montgomery was seen on CCTV outside her neighbor’s window, causing significant alarm and prompting a police call. However, Montgomery’s defense argued that she believed the cats were hers, with one belonging to her late mother. Despite her arrest, her defense stated that Montgomery had not yet had the opportunity to engage with mental health support since her release from prison.
