From the Courts - State District Court: Man sentenced on lesser charge in assault case


August 27, 2019

Tanner Joseph Walker was sentenced to six months probation after pleading guilty in a plea agreement that included dismissing a felony charge.

Walker was charged May 14, 2018, with a felony count of aggravated burglary and a misdemeanor count of assault after a person reported he walked into a house and punched a person.

He was scheduled to plead guilty in the plea agreement April 22, but District Judge John Parker said his statements implied his use of force was justified and did not accept the plea.

Walker pleaded guilty again to the misdemeanor assault charge May 31 and Parker was satisfied with his statements and accepted the plea.

Parker sentenced Walker to six months, all suspended and with credit for 24 days served, and ordered him to pay fees and surcharges.

Parker dismissed the felony count.
