A Granada man accused of assaulting his wife and locking her in a shed has been sentenced to probation.
Thirty eight year old Jared Cartwright agreed to plead guilty to a fifth degree controlled substance crime, while the charges of kidnapping and domestic assault were dropped as part of a plea agreement. He was sentenced to two years of supervised probation. District Court Judge Troy Timmerman also ordered Cartwright to attend domestic abuse counseling and abstain from drugs and alcohol.
Court documents say Cartwright took his wife into a shed on the property of their Huntley home, stripped her naked, physically assaulted her and refused to let her leave the shed. Court documents say the assault left the woman with bruising all over her body. Cartwright’s father rescued the victim from the shed the following morning after searching the property for the couple.
A search warrant discovered drug paraphernalia and nearly 3 grams of methamphetamines in his home.
Cartwright must also pay $835 in court fees and fines.
