Gloucester District Court: School Streeet man avoids added jail time

Gloucester District Court

GLOUCESTER — A 24-year-old School Street resident faced charges in five court cases, pleading guilty on all eight allegations in Gloucester District Court Friday, including assault and battery, malicious property destruction and driving after a license suspension.

But he was freed without any order to serve any additional times.

Anthony Bergmann received three jail sentences — one for 27 days in Middleton Jail, with that time already deemed served, and another for 10 days, which was also deemed served. The third and suspended sentence of 6 months also considered 27 days as time served, with about 5 months of that sentence hanging over his head during a two-year probation period.

Bergmann was also ordered to attend anger management and mandated to pay at least $90 in court assessments as well as restitution at a rate that has yet to be determined.

Property destruction charges made up four of the eight counts, all of which pertained to incidents and arrests between September and January.

Three of those counts stemmed from a January incident during which Bergmann had a disagreement with a 21-year-old woman at the residence where he lives. In that instance, he broke a 52-inch television, broke a hole in a drywall ceiling, and damaged a front door on the residence.

The final property destruction charge was the result of Bergmann kicking and damaging a vehicle belonging to a woman whose house had been the site of an assault and battery charge levied against Bergmann in November, after he reportedly grabbed a man by the throat and rushed him into the corner of a room, according to a police report.

Bergmann also faced two charges of driving with a suspended license, and one charge of a license plate violation in court Friday.
