Hagerstown man found guilty of assault, sentenced to jail

November 16, 2005

A Hagerstown man was found guilty of second-degree assault Tuesday and sentenced to five months in jail, with five months suspended, according to Washington County District Court documents.

Edward Eugene Houser Sr., 41, of 401 Brookline Ave., was charged in October with first-degree assault, false imprisonment, reckless endangerment and having an unregistered gun, documents state. Those charges were dismissed Tuesday.

In addition to the suspended jail sentence, Houser was sentenced to one year of supervised probation, documents state.

The charges stem from an Oct. 16 domestic incident. Documents state Houser pulled his wife's hair, punched her in the mouth and aimed a shotgun at her head, saying he was going to kill her.
