WARSAW —One charge was dismissed, while a jail sentence of 10 days was given to Davion Marquis Washington, 26, 111 S. Wood St., Warsaw, on a level 6 battery charge in Kosciusko Circuit Court.
Washington was sentenced Monday, March 7, to one year in the Kosciusko County Jail for battery with moderate bodily injury, a level 6 felony. The other charge of strangulation was dismissed.
Washington appeared in court with his lawyer, Joseph Sobek. Judge Michael Reed asked Sobek if there were any additions or corrections before he handed down the sentence. Sobek said no. When Reed asked Kosciusko County Prosecutor Dan Hampton the same question he suggested Washington get therapy or some type of intervention. He said, “(Washington) does have a good job and takes care of his children.”
Reed took this into consideration and when he handed down Washington’s sentence of one year to the county jail, with one day good-time credit and one day jail-time credit. Reed suspended the sentence with the condition Washington get an anger management assessment. Another term of Washington’s probation is he is to serve 10 days in the County jail.
Reed also issued a no contact order between Washington and the person he assaulted. Reed commented in closing on Washington’s battery charge, “That’s not tolerated. You don’t put your hands on someone else.”
