A Ravenna man who assaulted a Ravenna police officer in May 2012 recently was sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years probation.
Gregory L. Underwood, 20, of 230 W. Highland Ave., was sentenced by Portage County Common Pleas Judge Laurie Pittman after pleading guilty in October to assault on a law enforcement officer, a fourth-degree felony.
Underwood was granted work release privileges during his time in the Portage County jail. Pittman also ordered Underwood to attend anger management counseling at a mental health agency such as Coleman Professional Services, find a full-time job within six months and pay a $300 fine, according to court records.
Underwood admitted to assaulting Ravenna police officer David Wert during an arrest on May 3, 2012. He faced up to 18 months in prison on the charge.
Charges of inciting to violence, a third-degree felony, resisting arrest and obstructing official business, both second-degree misdemeanors, were dismissed by the Portage County Prosecutor's Office at the time of Underwood's guilty plea.
