July 28—SUNBURY — A Shamokin man charged with assaulting a probation officer earlier this year was sentenced Monday to one to two years in state prison and ordered to pay a $250 fine plus costs.

Northumberland County President Judge William H. Wiest imposed the sentence on 39-year-old Jason P. Carl Sr., who will begin serving time Thursday. Carl also received a concurrent sentence of one year probation for retail theft.

Carl, who was represented by Shamokin attorney Vincent V. Rovito, apologized for his actions before the court.

Carl, who was given credit for time previously served in the Northumberland County Prison division of SCI-Coal Township, was charged by Shamokin Patrolman Raymond Siko II with aggravated assault, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, simple assault and resisting arrest relating to a Jan. 28 disturbance at his home at 44 W. Adams St. The other charges were not prosecuted under a plea agreement.

He was accused of punching a probation officer in the face, causing injury, and possessing six oxycodone tablets and a straw coated with white residue.

He also was charged by Coal Township police with stealing a socket set from Jones Home Center along Route 61 on March 24, 2014.
