From the Coruts - State District Court: Man sentenced in charges reduced from assault on an officer


Zane Jay Pasma was sentenced in state District Court in Havre, Thursday, to a misdemeanor assault charge reduced in a plea agreement from a felony count of assault on an officer.

State District Judge Olivia Reiger sentenced Pasma to six months all suspended on each of a charge of assault and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors, credited him with four days served and ordered him to pay $190 in fees and surcharges.

Pasma was originally charged with the felony and misdemeanor counts of obstructing a peace officer and criminal possession of marijuana when a North Havre couple on Feb. 24, 2019, said he struck a woman after getting into an argument about his dog being missing.

Officers said Pasma resisted being placed in the patrol vehicle when he was arrested and later kicked a detention officer.
