MILAN - Michael T. Bagnato, former Milan mayor and Erie County probation officer, was served a warrant Tuesday morning in connection with stalking an area woman.

Bagnato, 60, of 317 S. Main St., was charged with menacing by stalking, a first-degree misdemeanor. If convicted, he could face up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine and community control sanctions.

Police said Bagnato is accused of contacting the victim from October through May and showed an "ongoing pattern of behavior." Authorities said they suspect Bagnato of having a relationship with the married woman, who was unavailable for comment today.

Bagnato refused to comment and would not name of his defense attorney.

Sandusky Municipal Court records show the suspected menacing offense happened May 5 and Bagnato, the mayor from 2000 through 2004, was issued a summons May 30 by the Sandusky Police Department. He was scheduled to appear in court this morning.

The Milan Police Department assisted Sandusky Police Detective Helen Prosowski in serving the warrant Tuesday. Bagnato, a former village council member, was released after signing a written promise he would appear in court.

Prosowski referred further questions on the case to Lt. Mike Campbell, who didn't return a call by press time.

Bagnato was an Erie County probation officer from March 28, 2001 through Dec. 5. He resigned from council Sept. 30.

His wife, Debbie, said at that the time her husband "just had had enough ... There are too many fish in this little pond."
