A North Tonawanda man who texted threatening messages to a former girlfriend was sentenced this week in Cheektowaga Town Court to 45 days in jail.

Justin T. Kloch, 26, of Roberts Drive, who had pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal contempt, was sentenced Monday by Town Justice Paul Piotrowski.

Town police had charged Kloch with criminal contempt and aggravated harassment in June 2012, after he violated an order of protection by sending 32 threatening text messages to the former girlfriend, according to a police department spokesman.
