Forcier faces five years for violating a harassment order

Christopher Lee Forcier, 33, Little Falls, was charged  Nov. 1, with one felony count of harassment and violating a restraining order by Morrison County Attorney Brian Middendorf and his staff.

On Sept. 4, a harassment retraining order was put in place for Forcier, preventing him from having contact with another person or that person’s children.

On Oct. 31, an alleged violation of the restraining order was reported, the caller stating Forcier had contact with one of the children through Facebook messages.

Forcier was placed under arrest for the violation. While in custody, he allegedly admitted having communication with the child even though he knew he was not allowed to.

An examination of Forcier’s criminal record showed he was convicted of domestic assault Nov. 13, 2006, and again March 19, 2008, both in Morrison County. As a result, the current offense is deemed a felony.

If convicted, Forcier faces a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine.
