BARRE – The Granite City man who was shot on Brooklyn Street in November was back in court Tuesday to adjust his sentence to community service on charges including aggravated domestic assault.
Seth Parry, 20, pleaded guilty in October to aggravated domestic assault, domestic assault, two violations of an abuse prevention order and two violations of conditions of release. He was sentenced to up to four years in prison and 60 days on the work crew.
In Washington County criminal court in Barre Tuesday, State’s Attorney Thomas Kelly said the Department of Corrections could not let Parry carry out the work crew part of the sentence out of fear of liability because of his shoulder injury from the shooting.
Parry was shot Nov. 15 near his apartment on Brooklyn Street. A witness told police that a masked man started fighting with Parry and a gun went off, striking Parry. Police say they are still investigating.
Judge Thomas Devine removed the work crew requirement of the sentence Tuesday and handed down 480 hours of community service, or eight hours of work crew per day he would have served times 60 days.
Parry’s attorney, James Martino, told Devine that he was unsure what community service Parry would be allowed to do by his doctor because of the injury, but accepted the switch to community service instead of the alternative of 60 days in jail for Parry.
