An 18-year-old Prospect Street man was handed a 6-month suspended jail term on charges of resisting arrest and assault resulting from an October incident in which he allegedly bit and kicked his 14-year-old girlfriend, then attempted to bite an officer and spit on him and the windows of a police cruiser, according to a police report.
Anthony Dietzel, during a Friday Gloucester District Court trial in front of Judge Joseph Jennings, had also faced charges of assault and battery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. But those charges were dismissed due to a failure to prosecute.
Dietzel pleaded guilty and was found guilty on the charges of resisting arrest and assault, drawing the jail term, a $50 fee, probation for a year and a requirement to undergo mandatory alcohol counseling.
Dean Nunes, 42, of Main Street, was ordered to pay $150 in court costs and fees by Judge Joseph Jennings in a case that resulted from Nunes allegedly being in a vehicle in which police found cocaine after a traffic stop last March.
Jennings found that Nunes had admitted to facts sufficient to warrant a guilty finding, but continued the charge for cocaine possession to January 2014 while placing him on administrative supervision until the next court date.
Caoin Sullivan, the 39-year-old Jewett Street man driving the car in that case, was also ordered to pay $150 in fees after admitting to sufficient facts, though his case was continued to January 2014 without a finding.
Sullivan was also found responsible for failing to stop at a marked stop sign and for failing to use a turn signal.
An assault and battery charge against Anthony Bergmann, 23, of Warner Street was dismissed upon failure to prosecute at his Friday trial.
Bergmann had been accused of grabbing a 21-year-old woman’s arm, yelling and screaming at her, then dumping a soda on a woman’s head and chest as the two walked down Pleasant Street in June.
