A 45-year-old Meshoppen man was sentenced to time served for a simple assault that occurred in April.

John David Saul Sr. appeared before Wyoming County President Judge Russell Shurtleff Wednesday and said he accepted responsibility for his actions.

His Attorney Robert Sheils said his client suffers from addiction and had spent 28 days in treatment on top of the time served.

Sheils said the 78 days in jail gave him time to reflect on his actions, and the pain he has inflicted.

Saul said he was in agreement with two separate restitution amounts: $13,066.40 and $250, in addition to an order to have no contact with the victim.

The judge’s sentence was 106 days-23.5 months as well as a $500 fine. He also faced a $300 fine for a summary charge of harassment.
