A Keene man was sentenced recently in Cheshire County Superior Court on charges stemming from an altercation involving a knife.

Jacob A. Morel, 20, pleaded guilty to committing reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, a felony, and simple assault, a misdemeanor, in Keene in November. According to sentencing documents, he wrestled with Scott Avera while holding a knife and grabbed and pulled Diane Avera’s hood. Morel was sentenced to 360 days in jail, with all but 30 days suspended for two years, on the reckless conduct charge. He will be placed on probation for two years upon release. On the simple assault charge, he was sentenced to 360 days in jail, all suspended for two years and consecutive to his other sentence. He was ordered to have no contact with the Averas.

Prosecutors dismissed a felony charge of criminal threatening.

Others recently sentenced include:

Jacquelyn M. Croke, 28, of Keene pleaded guilty to possessing fentanyl, a felony, in Keene in October. She was sentenced to 12 months in jail, all suspended for five years, and credited for nine days of time served.

Prosecutors dismissed a felony charge of possession of heroin.

Levy Pierce, 32, of Preston, Conn., pleaded guilty to committing simple assault, a misdemeanor, in Winchester in January 2010. According to sentencing documents, he hit a boy who was under the age of 13 at the time. He was sentenced to 12 months in jail, with six months suspended for five years, and credited for 25 days of time served. The court prohibited him from having contact with his victim.

Prosecutors dismissed a charge of aggravated felonious sexual assault without penetration.

The court imposed two sentences on Nicole Marrotte, 32, that had previously been suspended. Marrotte, of Denton, Md., had been previously convicted on felony charges of theft by deception and issuing bad checks. According to sentencing documents, the theft charge dates back to the period between June 2012 and February 2013, when Marrotte illegally obtained more than $1,500 in Social Security funds for the benefit of her daughter by creating the false impression that she had custody of her. The issuing bad checks conviction stems from the period between the beginning of February and the end of March 2013, the documents note, when she issued checks of $1,225 and $2,450 to Todd Jackson, knowing that she didn’t have funds to cover the checks in her account.

Each sentence imposed by the court is a 12-month jail sentence. Both are deferred for one year, during which time the court can impose, terminate, suspend or further defer the sentences for an additional three years.
