Action in Jefferson County District Court on Thursday

Michael Melroy, 22, was sentenced to four years probation in Jefferson County District Court Feb. 6 for first degree sexual assault, a class III felony. Linda Bauer, prosecutor, did not object to probation for Melroy, however she was concerned it might lessen the seriousness of this offense. Melroy was accused of having sex with an underage girl and making her pregnant. Bauer asked for a jail term at the beginning of his probation while his defense attorney, Jeffery Gaertig, asked the court to look at his clean record and grant him probation. Melroy spent 63 days in jail when he was first arrested.

Melroy told Judge Paul Korslund that he made a very bad judgment call and apologized for it. Korslund said probation sentence was proper in this case as Melroy had no prior record and is employed.

"Probation, however, isn't going to be easy," Korslund said. "There's going to be serious consequences."
