DOVER - An East Rochester man could be facing up to 14 years in state prison after his indictment on two counts of DV false imprisonment with a deadly weapon in connection with a May incident that occurred in Rochester .

Terrance Sleweon, with a last known address of 391 Portland St., is accused of confining the woman - an intimate partner - when he threatened (the victim) with a fire poker not allowing her to leave by pointing the fire poker at (while) ordering her to sit on the couch," according to the charging documents. He is also accused of threatening the same woman with a hammer while pinning her down and not allowing her to leave. Both alleged incidents occurred on May 13.

Sleweon, 31, could be sentenced from 3 and a half to seven years on each Class B felony charge.

The September grand jury indictments were released late last month.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt, rather that enough evidence has been presented to a grand jury that the case can move forward to trial.
