BURLINGTON, N.D. (AP) - A Burlington man likely won’t spend any more time in jail for punching and kicking a woman outside a bar.

Sixty-year-old Jerry Baldwin pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault in an agreement with prosecutors. He had been charged with felony aggravated assault for an attack on the woman that left her unconscious last July.

The Minot Daily News says Judge Todd Cresap gave Baldwin a suspended sentence of nearly a year in jail, except for nine days that he’s already served. He was also sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay $325 in court costs.
