Man to serve local jail sentence for domestic assault

Christopher Murillo

WORTHINGTON — An April domestic assault arrest in Worthington culminated Tuesday in a local jail sentence.

Christopher Murillo, 24, was arrested earlier this year after a victim reported that Murillo pushed them into a wall during an argument. He pleaded guilty to the charge of felony domestic assault and received a stay of imposition at his sentencing Tuesday. A stay of imposition is a ruling in which the judge declares the defendant guilty and allows the defendant to serve a probation term in lieu of prison time, but does not pronounce a sentence duration.

Fifth Judicial District Judge Gordon Moore ordered Murillo to abide by the terms of supervised probation for four years. He will also serve a total of 90 days locally in Nobles County Jail, after credit for 59 days already served, and pay a fine of $1,000, which he may work off through community service.
