Alleged Cazenovia ‘exercise stalker’ Daryl T. Anthony will be home for Christmas. He is out of the Madison County Jail on bail and scheduled to return to Cazenovia Town Court on March 5. His case, in fact, was almost settled during his court appearance on Dec. 18, when the district attorney’s office offered Anthony a plea deal of 60 days in jail and three year’s probation, which would cover not only the one charge against him but any similar charges in the case in which he allegedly stalked 10 women in the town of Cazenovia. This deal was offered even though Anthony’s court-ordered mental competency exam had not taken place and was not scheduled to occur until mid-January.
