One sentenced on felony charges

One person was sentenced recently on felony charges in Southeast District Court in Jamestown.

Andrew David Hardy, 48, no address listed, Jamestown, entered an Alford plea to two counts of contact by bodily fluids or excrement, Class C felonies.

An Alford plea means the person does not admit to the charges but recognizes there is enough evidence to convict him or her of the crimes.

Hardy was accused of spitting on two Jamestown Police Department officers on Oct. 6.

Judge Mark Blumer sentenced Hardy to one year and one day in the North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation with credit for one day served on each count. The sentences are to be served concurrently.

Blumer also placed Hardy on two years supervised probation and ordered him to pay a $400 criminal administration fee, $100 defense/facility administration fee, $35 indigent defense application fee, $300 indigent recoupment and $25 victim-witness fee.

A Class C felony is punishable by five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
