Man found guilty of assault
By MARLO BARNHART
A Washington County Circuit Court jury returned a verdict of guilty to one count of second-degree assault Monday in the trial of a man accused of robbing and beating a woman in downtown Hagerstown last summer.
The jury also found Timothy Shawn Hughes not guilty of robbery and theft charges, according to court records. Charges of first-degree assault, possession of marijuana and reckless endangerment had been dismissed earlier.
Hughes, 37, of 1030 C Kuhn Ave., was sentenced to one year and one day in jail. Judge John H. McDowell gave him credit for time served, court records said.
