Judge bars warlock from harassing witch in Salem.

In a city where alleged witches were once hanged, Judge Robert Brennan granted a civil order protecting Lori Sforza, 75, practitioner of witchcraft, from a rival provider of occult services. She alleged that Christian Day, 45, who claims to be the world’s “best-known warlock” had harassed her by phone and online over a period of three years. Sforza, a 75-year-old fortune teller, won a court order against New Orleans warlock Christian Day whom she claimed has harassed her for years with late-night phone calls and vicious internet posts. But that’s what happened Wednesday in Salem District Court when a 75-year-old witch priestess and psychic asked a judge to stop a man who calls himself the “world’s best-known warlock” from placing vulgar phone calls to her in the middle of the night. “I can see into my own future.

She told the judge she could see her own future and that she is afraid of Day, who she claims hissed the word on the phone and hung up multiple times. Day, who wore a blue suit and has dark hair tinged purple, protested Judge Robert A Brennan’s decision ordering him to have no contact with the witch or face up to two and half years in prison. “On everything that is holy, I did not make those calls,” Day said, before storming out of the courtroom and vowing an appeal.

Dressed in head-to-toe black and adorned with rings, necklaces, and broaches, Bruno-Sforza said the harassment kept her up at night, made her fear for her store, and left her wondering if she would be physically attacked. According to WBZ-TV, Sforza said she has known Day for 27 years and was a business partner with him in 2009, adding that she “treated him like a son.” Outside the courthouse, Day told reporters that trouble started in 2012 when Sforza split to open her own business. The pair made headlines in 2011 when they cast spells together to try to heal actor Charlie Sheen, who had called himself a “Vatican assassin warlock” during an interview on national television.

The phone calls were placed from a private number up to three times a week between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., Bruno-Sforza wrote in an affidavit filed in court. “Mt. The witch v warlock showdown occurred at time when thousands of tourists are flocking to Salem to celebrate Halloween and learn about the infamous colonial-era trials in which 20 people were accused of witchcraft and executed in the 1690s. Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, erupts again, and yet again, some crazy bat is taking credit for it,” read one post accompanied by a picture of a witch rising over a volcano. Bitch.” He built a business empire in Salem of witch shops and tours and launched a month-long psychic parlor where tourists have their tarot cards read while munching kettle corn.

Sforza testified the harassment began three years ago when she quit working for him and opened her own boutique called Magika on the Salem waterfront, where America’s spice trade began in the 17th century. In 2011, a judge issued a civil harassment order against Day after a Salem man alleged Day threatened him and tried to get him fired from his job, according to court records. Salem, home of the 17th-century witch trials, has a tourism industry built around the occult that reaches fever pitch in October, drawing thousands of visitors. I am not somebody’s footstool,” Sforza said on the witness stand, casting a regal presence with a ruby-colored jewel pinned atop her black knit hat.

The pair had worked together at Day’s witchcraft shop in Salem, but Day said their relationship frayed during negotiations to do a television show. “She opened a store behind my back in July 2012,” he said. “This is a business dispute and everything that she said in there about my calling her was a lie. . . He said she is a public figure, who just like GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump can be lampooned on the internet. “You called her repeatedly and used a word that really no one should use toward any other person, a young woman or an elderly woman,” the judge said.
