HART — A 23-year-old Shelby man who assaulted a female victim with a metal pot last January was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, April 24, to a minimum of one year and one day to a maximum of four years in prison.

Joshua Michael Flanery, of 64 S. Michigan Ave., Apt. 111, may be able to serve his time in a Special Alternative Incarceration (SAI) or “boot camp” program. Judge Bradley G. Lambrix said he was not opposed to Flanery serving his time in boot camp for his “very serious” offense.

“The court is not opposed to boot camp and will recommend it if it’s available through the Michigan Department of Corrections,” Lambrix said.

Flanery received credit for 90 days served in jail.

The victim addressed the court, requesting that the no-contact order be lifted to accommodate their parenting time for their child. Lambrix said he would leave that decision to the MDOC. “They can address that issue,” he said.

Flanery pleaded “no contest” to felonious assault last month.

In exchange for Flanery’s plea, the prosecution dismissed a charge of assault by strangulation and his third-offense habitual offender designation, along with a probation violation case.
