Lake Park man gets jail time

A Lake Park man was given a stayed prison sentence and up to five years of supervised probation on a felony domestic assault charge.

Joseph Leroy Gullard, 32, of 33620 County Road 105, Lake Park, was also ordered to serve 30 days in jail, 30 days of electronic home monitoring and pay $1,085 in fine and fees as a condition of his probation.

The charges stemmed from an Oct. 25, 2008 incident in which he got into an argument with his girlfriend and allegedly pushed her into a nearby crib, then tried to choke her. Gullard had previously been convicted of domestic assault and fifth-degree assault in 2005.
