Man sentenced for assault

NORTHAMPTON – A Northville man was sentenced last month in Town Court to nine months in the Fulton County Jail in an assault case.

Fulton County District Attorney Louise Sira said Donald R Town, III, 39, of 221 N. Third St., was also sentenced March 13 by Justice John Farquhar to a three-year order of protection for the victim, John English of Edinburg, and restitution of $70 to be paid to English.

Sira said Town was sentenced for his Dec. 10 conviction after a jury trial before Farquhar. He was convicted of one misdemeanor count of third-degree assault.

Town was arrested by state police following an April 15 incident at his residence. Authorities said Town tackled English from behind, forcing him to strike the ground. The victim suffered a broken nose and maxilla, facial lacerations, swelling and bruising, authorities said.
