Michael Emory Allen, 26, Little Falls, was convicted Sept. 11, of misdemeanor domestic assault by the Morrison County Judicial Courts.
On Sept. 14, 2012, the Little Falls Police Department responded to a report of a domestic dispute. While outside the residence, they heard a female yelling for help.
The officers were unable to kick in the door but soon Allen opened it and admitted the officers.
They located the woman, who appeared terrified, in the bathroom. She said the two had gotten into a fight because he took her vehicle without her permission.
The victim told the officers Allen had covered her mouth with his hand and her throat with his other arm, causing her to not be able to breathe.
Allen was placed under arrest for domestic assault.
Allen was given 90 days in jail with credit for the 90 days time served and was fined $100.
Assistant District Attorney Todd Kosovich said Allen had one felony count each of domestic assault and theft dismissed because he pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor.
Allen is currently serving 21 months in prison on a Stearns County case.
