A Franklin man could serve close to two years in county jail following his sentencing in a case in which he was accused of assaulting and terrorizing a woman in her Franklin home.
21 year-old Quintin Williams was sentenced last week in Venango County Court to six months to two years– less one day – following guilty pleas entered by Williams to charges of making terroristic threats, simple assault and unlawful restraint. He will be given credit for nearly four months already served. Williams was also fined, and was ordered to serve 100 hours of community service.
In a plea bargain, counts of false imprisonment and trespassing were dismissed.
Williams was accused in a March incident at Oak Hill in which he refused to leave a woman’s home. The woman claimed Williams hit and choked her several times, struck her with objects lying in the home, and stole two phones. Police at the time said the woman also claimed Williams had threatened to contact other individuals to assault her, as well.
