Chubbuck man sentenced to probation for pulling gun on neighbor file photo
POCATELLO — A man who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for disturbing the peace will spend one year on probation.
Richard Damien Jacobus, 47, was initially charged with a felony for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. But after reaching a plea agreement with the Bannock County Prosecutor’s Office, he pleaded guilty to an amended charge of disturbing the peace.
During a sentencing hearing in April, Magistrate Judge Paul Laggis suspended a sentence of 30 days in jail, instead placing Jacobus on 12 months of probation, court records show.
