Gloucester District Court: Man gets suspended time on multiple charges

Gloucester District Court

GLOUCESTER — A 31-year-old homeless Gloucester man, was fined $200 and handed a 90-day suspended jail term after being found guilty on multiple charges Friday in Gloucester District Court.

Sean T. Kelley was found guilty on an assault and battery charge, disturbing the peace, two disorderly conduct charges and two trespassing charges.

The first assault and battery charge resulted from a June arrest when Kelley was accused of throwing his girlfriend to the ground and pushing her as they walked on Main Street, according to a police report. Kelley was ordered to pay a $50 fine and placed on probation in this case.

One disorderly conduct charge and a disturbing the peace charge resulted from a May 2011 arrest when Kelley was accused of drunkenly accosting softball players and fans during softball games at Burnham’s Field. Kelley was ordered to pay a $50 fine and handed a 90-day suspended jail sentence, extending through January 2014.

Another disorderly conduct and a trespassing charge stemmed from an incident in which Kelley was “intoxicated” and swam from the Birdseye property to the St. Peter’s Fiesta Greasy Pole while wearing a T-shirt and jeans, according to a police report. Another $50 fee resulted from this case.

Kelley’s final trespassing charge came after a December arrest, when Kelley was found walking on the train tracks near Cleveland Street after a fight with two other men, according to a police report. Kelley could face an additional 30 days in jail on this charge, if he breaks the law before January 17, 2014. He was also ordered to pay a $50 fee and will be subject to random drug screens since he is supposed to remain drug and alcohol free.

A 49-year-old Revere Street man, was placed on a year’s probation and ordered to pay a $50 fee after being found guilty of a subsequent offense of driving with a suspended license at a pretrial hearing Tuesday in Gloucester District Court.
