A Rockport man will serve more than four months in jail after violating his probation.
Steven Thackery, 19, received a suspended sentence for charges of larceny and intimidating a witness last June, and was placed on probation for a charge of assault and battery.
That probation, according to court documents, was conditional on completing the Salvation Army rehabilitation program, which Thackery did not complete.
Judge Joseph Jennings on Monday in Gloucester District Court sentenced Thackery to six months in jail, with 33 days credited.
Officers sought criminal complaints against Thackery for the assualt and theft on two separate occasions.
Last March, a woman came into the station to report that Thackery had choked her son and stolen his skateboard on Maplewood Avenue. According to the police report, the woman's son said Thackery did that because the son had been a witness to Thackery's attempted assault on a private plow driver last February.
Police recovered the skateboard and sought complaints against Thackery for assault and battery, theft, and intimidating a witness.
Officers also sought complaints against Thackery for his role in a theft of a $1,500 laptop from a house in April.
