Michael Gibson, 50, of 209 Broadway in Raywick received 24 months of probation after pleading guilty to fourth-degree assault in Marion Circuit Court recently.
A charge of third-degree terroristic threatening was dismissed.
Gibson is a co-defendant with Christopher Gribbins stemming from an incident outside of the Raywick Bar and Grill Nov. 9, 2012.
Gibson and Gribbins were both indicted for second-degree assault against Phillip J. Franklin of Springfield.
Gribbins was also indicted separately for murder in connection with the death of David Litsey Jr., 22, who died in a shooting outside the bar that same day. Gribbins' charges are still pending in both cases.
Man gets eight years for home invasion
Steven Keith Bartley, 22, of 571 Big Valley Drive in Shepherdsville was sentenced to eight years in prison for second-degree robbery. He was ordered to pay $1,200 restitution.
Bartley and co-defendant Lawrence Inman were indicted for first-degree robbery stemming from a home invasion incident on New Year's Day in Holy Cross.
Inman was also indicted for impersonating a police office. His case is still pending.
Following Bartley and Inman's arrests, Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Clements explained that two men knocked on the door of a Holy Cross residence and asked for help at 6 a.m. Jan. 1. The men initially identified themselves as police officers, and one of them was wearing a baseball cap that read "Detective," Clements told the Enterprise.
A woman opened the door, and the men forced their way inside and struck her several times with a handgun. Clements added that the suspects demanded prescription medication from the victim. When they weren't able to get any medication, they stole several personal items before driving away. A PlayStation 3 and X-Box games were later recovered.
