A Gloucester man accused of stabbing a woman who had been staying with him will serve 32 days in jail.
Judge Joseph Jennings sentenced Robert Goodick III, 46, of 71 Maplewood Ave., to serve 32 days of a 20-month jail sentence after he pleaded guilty to charges in the case in Gloucester District Court on Monday. The remainder of the sentence is suspended for two years. Goodick was also placed on probation for two years.
Goodick was arrested in June on charges of assault and battery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Jennings continued charges of providing alcohol to minors and trespassing brought against a Gloucester man in court on Monday.
Those charges, brought against Felix Porter, 18, of 44 Veterans Way were continued for 18 months.
Porter also faced a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a child, and was ordered to pay a yet-to-be set amount of restitution. Jennings continued that charge for 18 months as well.
Police had sought criminal complaints against Porter in November, after they responded to a report of an injured woman in the bathroom at the McDonald’s on Maplewood Avenue. When police found her, they saw she had substantial injuries to her jaw.
A man with her said that a headstone from the Oak Grove Cemetery had fallen on her after she tried to jump over it and knocked it over on herself. He said she and a few other juveniles had been given alcohol by Porter.
Police found Porter at his residence and his mother said their attorney had advised him not to speak with police.
A charge of assault and battery brought against a Gloucester man was continued without a finding for a year on Monday.
Jennings granted the continuance to Jason Munroe, 24, of 718 The Heights of Cape Ann. Police responded to Munroe’s residence and arrested him after he was accused of trying to choke a woman staying with him in January.
Attempted breaking and entering and trespassing charges brought against James Fitzgerald, 24, of 32 Lufkin St. in Essex, were dismissed Monday at the request of state prosecutors.
Jennings dismissed disorderly conduct charges brought against Samuel Goffey, 23, of 63 Summer St. on payment of $150 in court costs on Tuesday.
Jennings dismissed a charge of driving an uninsured motor vehicle brought against Kathleen Hill, 41, of 18 Allen St. on payment of $200 in court costs Tuesday
Jennings also dismissed a charge of driving with a suspended license brought against Terrence Baker, 39, of 260 Common St. in Quincy, on payment of $200 in court costs on Monday.
A charge of driving an uninsured motor vehicle, brought against Christopher Rowell, 28, of 151 South St. in Rockport, was also dismissed Monday on payment of $200 in court costs.
