William Marty convicted of assault in Morrison County

William Joseph Marty, 41, Little Falls, was convicted April 9 of felony domestic assault in the Seventh Judicial District Court of Morrison County.

On Oct. 22, 2013, the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a domestic situation in Pike Creek Township.

At the scene, the victim told officers that while Marty was on the phone with her mother (and she was in the bathroom), he became upset and told the mother he would bash both her head in and the head of the victim.

The victim then said  that when she told Marty to “Knock it off,” he banged on the bathroom door, telling her he was going to bash her head in. The victim stated she was fearful for her life.

While locked in the bathroom, the victim called law enforcement.

Marty was found in the basement and admitted he had yelled at the victim.

An examination of Marty’s criminal history showed he was convicted of one count of fifth degree assault in 2006 and two counts of fifth degree assault in 2009.

Marty was sentenced to 30 days in jail, fined $135 and given five years of supervised probation. His sentencing was given a stay of imposition which means his sentencing will be deemed a misdemeanor if he completes the full term of his probation with no violations.

Dismissed against Marty was one felony count each of making terroristic threats and fifth degree possession of drugs.
