Darrin Jones was questioned by a probation officer about an alleged assault last summer, but it was not a “custodial interrogation” and thus will not be suppressed if his case goes to trial, a Washington County Circuit Court Judge ruled Tuesday. Jones, 44, of Gwynn Oak, Md., is charged with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment in an incident that allegedly took place while he was living at Wells House, a drug treatment facility on East Baltimore Street, according to court documents.

A Washington County Circuit Court judge gave a Williamsport man 24 hours of unsupervised probation for grabbing one of four boys who he alleged was vandalizing his home. Vincent Allen Strewsewski, 45, entered an Alford plea to second-degree assault, a misdemeanor carrying a maximum sentence of 10 years. An Alford plea is not an admission of guilt, but an acknowledgment that the state has enough evidence to gain a conviction. Judge Daniel P. Dwyer accepted the plea and gave Strewsewski probation before judgment and one day on probation.
