The prosecution in a domestic violence case said they have extended a plea offer to the defendant.
The defendant is charged with felony assault with a dangerous weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm. The prosecution’s offer would allow him to plead down to a charge to a simple assault.
Defense attorney Joseph Yarbough said he has not had the opportunity to discuss the offer with his client but plans to do so.
The defendant has had a bail amount imposed in this case, but he is being held in a federal case.
Judge Robert Okun scheduled the next hearing for Feb. 22.
