DA: Stalker, Conniving Criminal, Warren T, 35, Harassed Grandmother, Granddaughter; Sentenced to State Prison
April 23, 2015
LONG ISLAND, NY – A Suffolk County man convicted last month of stalking a Patchogue grandmother and her granddaughter after meeting them in a local library was sentenced today to seven years in state prison, followed by five years post release supervision, District Attorney Thomas Spota said.
Warren T., also known as Warren Granby, was convicted of stalking, assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
For over a year, the 35 year old defendant harassed the pair by repeated visits to their home and the child’s bus stop. Jurors learned during the two week trial that T would visit the home of the victims and call for the child from the front lawn, promising the girl, now 11 years old, that he would “take care of her and protect her”.

During today’s sentencing, the grandmother addressed the court, telling Judge John Toomey the defendant is a “conniving criminal” and her granddaughter is “an innocent child put through hell and is still living through it”.
Police arrested Granby on January 14, 2014 for assault after he severely beat the victims’ 76 year old landlord who ordered the defendant to leave his property.
The defendant had previously lived in Patchogue on Bay Avenue and East Main Street.
At the time of his arrest, he told police he was staying at a Huntington Station homeless shelter.
