SYCAMORE – A Cortland man faces battery charges after police say he attacked two women Monday.

If convicted of the more serious charge of aggravated domestic battery, Farmer could face up to seven years in prison.
According to court records, Farmer wrapped his hand around a woman’s throat and squeezed, choking her because she was being too loud.

In court Tuesday, Farmer’s mother said he could stay with her if he was released.
Judge Robbin Stuckert ordered Farmer released on his signature and that he be placed on pretrial supervision.
She also appointed the public defender’s office to represent him.
Farmer’s next court date is 3 p.m. Nov. 18.
