A Capital Region real estate agent is facing charges.
NewsChannel 13 was the only camera on scene when Gucciardo turned himself in Monday morning at the Watervliet Police Station. He was then taken to jail for a virtual arraignment.
Gucciardo is charged with aggravated harassment, stalking and falsely reporting.
Police say he harassed a woman and her family over the phone, drove by their homes, and threatened them.
Police also say he called the Watervliet school superintendent, and claimed that one of the woman's family members was having inappropriate relations with a special ed student. That claim turned out to be a lie.
Gucciardo has been released on his own recognizance.
The following statement was posted to Facebook:
To all of my family, friends, colleagues and clients,
Today I entered a plea of not guilty to allegations my ex-fiance has filed against me. Sadly, her claims come after I ended our engagement because of information leading me to believe she was unfaithful multiple times. I have retained an attorney and have turned over dozens of screenshots of text messages demonstrating that these allegations are false. I am confident that my attorney will be present a clear picture of why these allegations are untrue.
As most of you know, I have been a licensed real estate broker for nearly 18 years. I am committed to my clients and to my business. For those who have worked with me in the past, thank you. For those that continue to call Gucciardo Real Estate Group your broker, please know that our commitment to you will continue to be unmatched and uninterrupted service.
