Investigators in Chatham County have accused a man of violating a domestic violence protective order hundreds of times.
Jeremy Keith Branch, 45, of Sanford, was charged with 248 counts of violating a domestic violence protection order, according to a news release from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators say Branch made repeated calls to a person who had an active protection order against him. The calls were made from prison, where Branch is currently serving time for domestic violence-related acts committed against the same individual, investigators say.
Branch is scheduled to appear Aug. 7 in Chatham County District Court in Pittsboro, according to the release.
