Man pleads guilty to lesser alcohol charge
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

A felony domestic assault charge against a Ponsford man was dismissed last week after he pled guilty to an unrelated gross misdemeanor charge of providing alcohol to persons under the age of 21.

Rex Sullivan Roberts Jr., 25, of 28060 County Road 24, Ponsford, had originally been charged with trying to strangle his female companion on Oct. 12, 2008, but the felony count was dismissed when he pled guilty to the lesser charge. He was ordered to serve 365 days in jail and pay a $500 fine on the gross misdemeanor charge.
