The brother-in-law of former governor Deval Patrick was arrested and arraigned Friday for violating a restraining order in an ongoing criminal case, according to the Norfolk district attorney’s office.
Bernard Sigh, 66, was arrested Friday on a Milton police warrant. Sigh tried to contact the victim in an ongoing domestic assault case, prosecutors said in a statement.
Sigh pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Quincy District Court Friday afternoon, according to authorities.
Judge Paula J. Clifford revoked his bail on an underlying case, meaning he will be held without bail for 90 days. He is due back in court on his new charge May 4.
Sigh’s attorney, Jose Sanabria, declined to comment on the matter late Friday afternoon.
In February, a grand jury indicted Sigh on kidnapping, rape, and assault charges. He was charged with one count of witness intimidation, one count of kidnapping, two counts of rape, and three counts of assault and battery.Globe Correspondent Alana Levene contributed to this report.
