Sugar Camp man charged with felony child abuse

A 44-year-old Sugar Camp man has been charged with child abuse- recklessly cause harm in connection with April 17 incident at a private residence.

Kevin T. Cibulka made his initial appearance April 20 before Oneida County Circuit Judge Michael Bloom.

A $7,000 signature bond was set with the conditions that he not consume intoxicants, enter taverns and have no abusive contact with the alleged victim or their mother. He was also given instructions to appear remotely on May due to COVID-19 restrictions.

During a court hearing on May 11, district attorney Michael Schiek told Bloom that he had spoken to Cibulka on May 5 and had scheduled a meeting on May 7 with the alleged victim, but they didn't keep the appointment. Schiek then asked the judge to issue a warrant for Cibulka's arrest for failure to appear for the hearing. The motion was granted.

Cibulka made a voluntary appearance the next day. He asked Bloom about talking to the DA about his case, but did not formally waive his right to an attorney at that time, according to online court records.

After quashing the arrest warrant, Bloom set another adjourned initial appearance for June 8.

According to the criminal complaint, Cibulka got into an argument with a woman at a residence on Pike Bay Road, and the teenage alleged victim tried to intervene. The complaint says that Cibulka grabbed the youth by the front of their shirt and held them against a glass patio door for several seconds before throwing them on a couch.

When Oneida County deputies arrived, they noticed some marks on the alleged victim, which they photographed. Cibulka was taken into custody and taken to the Oneida County Courthouse where he was held until he made his initial appearance the next day.

If convicted on the class I felony, Cibulka faces up to 3 years, 6 months in prison.
