Jason Alumbaugh sentenced for criminal mischief, simple assault

Jason Joseph Alumbaugh, 29, will end up serving about 72 days in jail and two years of supervised probation on various charges.

There was a “global resolution” of charges against him, according to a listing on the North Dakota Courts site.

Alumbaugh, Luzerne, Mich., pleaded guilty to a Class A misdemeanor criminal mischief charge on Tuesday before Judge Richard Hagar. On that charge, Hagar sentenced him to 360 days in jail, with all suspended but the 72 days he has already spent in the Ward County Jail, and the two years of probation. He was also ordered to pay $909.93 in restitution and $325 in court costs and to stay away from the victim.

He pleaded guilty to Class B misdemeanor simple assault in another case. He had originally been charged with Class C felony aggravated assault – domestic violence in that case and had been accused of hitting and strangling his ex-girlfriend during a dispute on April 10. On that charge, Hagar sentenced him to 30 days in jail, gave him credit for 30 days served, and ordered him to have no contact with the victim. He must also pay $250 in court costs. The sentence is concurrent with those in other cases. The judge dismissed a Class A misdemeanor charge of violation of a no contact order in that case.

The state dismissed a Class A misdemeanor disobedience of a judicial order charge dating back to March 10 and another Class A misdemeanor charge of violation of an order prohibiting contact dating back to April 20. The state also dismissed a Class C felony protection order violation dating back to June 17.
