Deferred jail term for Nashua’s Webster
NASHUA – Prosecutors at Timothy Webster’s plea and sentencing hearing this week agreed to a deferred jail term and to amend a felony assault charge to a misdemeanor, as long as Webster abides by the terms spelled out in his sentencing order.
In exchange, Webster, 22, most recently of 14 Whitney St., Apt. 2, entered guilty pleas to the amended count of second-degree assault – domestic violence, and to one count of simple assault – domestic violence, a misdemeanor.
Several other charges were dismissed as part of the plea agreement. They include one count of first-degree assault, a felony, and five counts of simple assault – domestic violence, misdemeanors.
The charges stem from a June 2 domestic altercation at the Whitney Street residence, during which Webster allegedly struck his intimate partner in the head with a hammer and punched him “numerous times … because he was upset with him,” police said at the time.
Responding officers reported they found the alleged victim lying in bed with blood on him, and located a hammer, also covered with blood, on the floor next to a clump of hair, according to reports.
It was Webster who called police in the early morning hours of June 2, telling police he wanted the alleged victim “to leave (their apartment) because he was still feeling violent toward him.”
The parties began negotiations toward a plea deal
in August, according to Webster’s case file.
