Man gets 12 months for assaulting wife

A  29-year-old man was sentenced to 27 months in prison for assaulting his wife and violating the terms and conditions of his probation in other criminal cases.

But 15 months of the sentence was suspended, and the remaining 12 months will be served by William S. Indalecio Jr. in prison day-for-day without possibility of parole or early release of any kind.

In his sentencing order, Superior Court Associate Judge Kenneth L. Govendo also gave Indalecio credit for 167 days of time served. He will be released from the Department of Corrections on Jan. 3, 2019 at 8 a.m.

 Indalecio was ordered to pay court costs of $360 including probation fees. He will also report to the Office of the Adult Probation one week after being released from Corrections, and will be placed on supervised probation for three years.

Indalecio will complete 200 hours of community work service, pay a fine of $500, and enroll in the Community Guidance Center for counseling.

 Indalecio was ordered to refrain from harassing, threatening, attacking, or assaulting his wife.

  If he fails to comply with these conditions, he will be subject to additional charges, according to Judge Govendo’s commitment order.

 On June 19, 2018, Indalecio pled guilty to charges of assault and battery and contempt. In return, the government dismissed the other charges against him.

Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Wilberscheid represented the government while Chief Public Defender Douglas Hartig, represented Indalecio.

 The victim told police that prior to the incident, she heard a loud knock on  her apartment window the night of Jan. 3, 2018 and saw Indalecio.

She said Indalecio saw that she was with her children and ex-husband who was visiting them at the time. She said the defendant accused her of getting back together with her former husband.

 When she asked him to leave, she said Indalecio approached her vehicle and tried to break her rear windshield wiper, so she went outside. She said Indalecio came toward her, grabbed her by the hair and then slapped her in the face. It was her ex-husband who called the police.
