Cal Harris pleads not guilty to new charges in case involving NYSP investigator

Local News

Cal Harris, the man acquitted in his wife’s murder after four trials is back in court on Tuesday. 

Harris pleaded not guilty in Oneonta Town Court to new charges tied to his alleged June 2016 stalking of a New York State Police Investigator who was involved in the 15-year criminal case against him. 

Harris is charged with a misdemeanor for menacing and a harassment violation. 

The charges come after State Police arrested Harris just three weeks after he was found not guilty of second-degree murder in the September 11, 2001 disappearance of Michele Harris, whose body has never been found. 

Harris was allegedly making threats to Investigator Terry Shultz outside his home. 

According to court papers, Harris allegedly sat in front of Shultz’s house for over an hour and told him, “I’m going to get all you guys. How’s your son? Maybe I will go drag him out of school. I have been following him around.” 

Court papers also indicate Harris videotaped Shultz’s house, property, and cars at the location. A dashboard camera was in Harris’ 2012 Cadillac at the time of the incident. 

“This is a feeble attempt by (state police) to get even,” Harris told reporters in a June 10 press conference. 

Harris is expected back in court on April 19.
