ALBANY – A man is going to jail after getting into a physical fight with someone he was ordered to stay away from.

Back in October, Robert Jett, 42, was arrested for hitting the victim with a broom and squeezing his neck. This violated a court order of protection that was issued in May.

Jett later pleaded guilty.

He was sentenced to six months in prison, and five years felony probation.

He must also undergo training in a domestic violence program.
