Office Assault Incident Yields Probation for Beatrice Man

BEATRICE – An attempt at assaulting an officer and resisting arrest, has ended with a probation term for Jason Sanchez.

Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner Wednesday ordered a 36-month probation sentence for the attempted assault of a Beatrice Police lieutenant, and a concurrent 24-month probation sentence for resisting arrest.

A joint state and defense recommendation called for 180 days in jail, with a two- year probation term.  Sanchez had already spent 156 days in custody.  The judge did not order jail time on either conviction.
