Bellamy warns offender '... the women hold the key to the jail.'
William E. Stoner, 47, of Sweet Springs, pleaded guilty in Associate Court Wednesday, May 27, to one count of class A misdemeanor 3rd degree domestic assault and one count of class A misdemeanor assault with injury.
Judge James T. "Tut" Bellamy sentenced Stoner to two years court-supervised probation on the domestic assault charge and 10 days incarceration at Saline County Justice Facility on the assault with injury charge, subject to time served and concurrent with the assault charge.
Advised by Saline County Prosecuting Attorney Donald G. Stouffer that the assault victims had asked for Stoner to be allowed to return to their home, Bellamy warned Stoner that the two women "hold the key to the jail for you. Make sure it's peaceful in your household."
