Sean Vincent Jones has accepted a plea deal in a case from last year in which he had been accused of attacking his girlfriend once in February and again in October after they had broken up. Jones pled guilty to two counts of assault in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor.

Prosecutors dismissed all of the felony charges which had faced Jones, including multiple counts each of assault in the first and third degrees. 

Jones’ received a sentence of 360 days imprisonment with 300 suspended and a suspended $1,000 fine in each case, the sentences to be served concurrently. The 114 days that Jones spent under electronic monitoring and 14 days at Wildwood Pretrial will count against his sentence. Jones will serve three years’ probation.

The court also ordered that Jones undergo a mental health evaluation and contribute his PFD annually toward restitution. He must also pay a jail and police training surcharge.

The case began with an incident last October at Tony’s Bar, in which police say Jones tackled and then punched his ex-girlfriend. The victim later told police about another incident in February in which she said Jones assaulted her at the apartment they shared on the Seward Highway.
