HART – A 29-year-old Whitehall man was sentenced to one year in jail in 27th Circuit Court Monday. Feb. 11, for a felonious assault conviction.

A felony charge of felony firearm and a misdemeanor of domestic violence were dismissed against Joshua Steven Brock, of 5551 S. Shore Dr., when he pleaded guilty to the felonious assault charge last December.

The weapon used in the assault was a shotgun, according to court records.

“This was a domestic situation, and the victim did not want the suspect to be sent to prison,” said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

“I’m sorry for my actions, and I hope I can move forward from here,” Brock said to Judge Robert D. Springstead.

“If you violate the terms of your probation, you will go to prison,” Springstead said. “You have been to prison twice before, and I’m sure you don’t want to go back.”

According to the Offender Tracking Information System (OTIS), Brock was sentenced to two and a half to 20 years in prison in Muskegon County for a conviction of first-degree home invasion and a two-year prison term in Oceana County in April of 2015 for a welfare fraud conviction.

Brock received credit for 99 days served in jail. The judge also ordered two years probation and that Brock have no contact with the victim in the case.
