An Austin man who assaulted another man with brass knuckles at a residence in the 1000 block of 11th Avenue Southwest in Austin on May 29th, 2019 has been sentenced to jail time, supervised probation, fines and fees in Mower County District Court.
31-year old Jayden Leonard Sheldon was sentenced Thursday to 30 days in jail, five years of supervised probation and $985 in fines and fees for a felony charge of 3rd degree assault, substantial bodily harm. Sheldon was granted a stay of imposition in the case where the defendant pleads guilty to a felony-level offense. If he or she successfully completes their probation, the conviction will be deemed a misdemeanor. Sheldon was given credit for 30 days already served, and he was convicted on the charge on December 27th, 2019 after pleading guilty the same day.
Felony charges for 2nd degree assault with a dangerous weapon, substantial bodily harm and 2nd degree assault with a dangerous weapon, plus misdemeanor charges of 5th degree assault, inflict or attempt bodily harm, and for possession of metal knuckles in the case against Sheldon were all dismissed with his guilty plea.
