Hurley — A Hurley man with several active cases in Iron County is now also wanted on an additional 29 charges, after Iron County District Attorney Matt Tingstad recently filed a sixth case in Iron County Court.

Andrew R. Zaleski, 38, is charged with one count of stalking, domestic abuse; 14 counts of felony bail jumping and 14 counts of violating a foreign order of protection from Gogebic County in Michigan.

The stalking charge carries a potential maximum sentence of up to 3.5 years in prison or a fine of up to $10,000. Each bail jumping count carries a potential maximum sentence of up to six years in prison or a fine of up to $10,000.

Violating a foreign protection order is a misdemeanor with a potential maximum penalty of up to nine months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

Zaleski is accused of repeatedly contacting an ex in December and January, according to the Jan. 31 criminal complaint in the case.

A search of Zaleski’s phone by Hurley Police Department Sgt. Donald Packmayer allegedly showed evidence of texts and explicit pictures being sent through multiple applications between Dec. 22 and Jan. 7, according to the complaint.

While the daily number of alleged messages varied by day, the information in the complaint alleges the number was as high as 168 texts at one point.

Zaleski is also facing charges in several other cases in Iron County, according to online court records.

In a case filed Jan. 31, he is charged with child abuse-intentionally causing harm and felony bail jumping.

In a case filed Oct. 8, he is charged with felony bail jumping.

He is also charged with one count felony bail jumping in cases filed Oct. 3 and Sept. 6.

In a Jan. 31, 2018 case, Zaleski is charged with false imprisonment, stalking and violating a foreign protection order.
