The man accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend.

Trespassing charge

According to court records, Cutts pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of aggravated trespassing in December 1998 and was forbidden to have contact with former girlfriend Nikki Giavasis. His police personnel file lists a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct on the same date.

In another document in the file, Cutts admits he broke down Giavasis' door.

Giavasis said in recent television interviews that Cutts was violent with her and threatened to steal their daughter.

Cutts was hired by the Canton police in 2000, but was later fired when his handgun was found under a mattress during a drug raid at his cousin's home. Police accused Cutts of falsely reporting the gun stolen and giving it to the relative.

An arbitrator's report states Cutts was reinstated with full pay in 2003 because the department didn't prove its case.

Cutts' police application states that he graduated from GlenOak High School in 1995 and attended Walsh University for four years, but did not receive a degree. Cutts played semi-pro football with the Canton Legends.

Before becoming an officer, he lists job experience as a collection officer, landscaper and member of the playground staff for the Canton Department of Recreation.

He writes in his application for the Canton police job that he ``can be looked at as a positive element in the Canton community. I was born and raised in this community and I want to be a positive influence on others born and raised here.''
Pretty interesting how after all that, he was still a police officer. I've also heard it reported that he currently has a restraining order against him, but I couldn't find a good link. Sounds like with all those threats of violence and the fact he broke down the door that his aggravated trespass conviction could be considered domestic violence. Between that and the restraining order I wonder how he could even carry a gun, let alone be a cop.

How was he not in violation of the Lautenberg amendment? Was ne never convicted of anything that would have DQ'd him from owning/possessing a firearm?

i've wondered that myself is other cases as well, if i had a domestic violence record i would have been unable to ever own a gun license without a pardon. the same rules and standards should apply to everyone whether a judge, leo or average joe.

With the Lautenberg amendment soldiers can't even think about picking up a firearm or ammunition if they've been convicted of domestic violence. Which means that they can't deploy overseas. Which basically equates to hitting your wife and you don't have to go to Iraq. You won't necessarily be kicked out of the military either. I personally know at least two guys in the military who can't possess firearms. That's kind of dumb if you ask me.
