WORTHINGTON ― Jady Alfonso, 28, of Worthington, will serve three years of supervised probation for an assault that involved breaking a victim's finger, it was determined Wednesday.
Alfonso was arrested in April after a friend of the victim reported to law enforcement that Alfonso had hurt the victim and then returned to the victim's residence later. It was also alleged that Alfonso had threatened to kill both the victim and the friend because they reported the assault.
He was charged with felony third-degree assault and threats of violence, as well as two counts of misdemeanor domestic assault.
Alfonso pleaded guilty to the felony assault charge; the other charges were dismissed.
At the sentencing hearing Wednesday, Fifth Judicial District Judge Terry Vajgrt explained that the presumptive, or usual, sentence for this crime is one year and one day in prison. However, Alfonso was granted a stay of imposition, meaning that a sentence was not pronounced, and he is allowed to serve probation instead.
If Alfonso does not abide by his probation terms, he will be returned to court and possibly sentenced at that time.
Alfonso was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and $150 in restitution to the victim.
