Velazquez Sentenced

A Storm Lake man arrested in September after police investigated a domestic disturbance has been sentenced.

Police allege 44-year-old Walfrido Velazquez physically assaulted his wife and destroyed property inside of their residence. As police took Velazquez into custody, they allege he resisted arrest. He was taken to the ground and subdued.

Police charged Velazquez with domestic assault and interference with official acts, both simple misdemeanors. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 48 hours in jail, and to pay 575-dollars in fines, surcharges, and court costs.
