LUDINGTON — A 60-year-old Fountain man faces serving 90 days in jail up front of a one-year discretionary term after pleading guilty to attempted felonious assault with a shotgun Tuesday, Nov. 10, in 51st Circuit Court.

Thomas Lee Tribble, of 4851 N. Cleveland St., was initially charged with felony counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and felony firearm and two misdemeanor counts of second-offense domestic violence stemming from an Aug. 1 incident in the Village of Fountain.

Tribble’s conviction of attempted felonious assault is a high-court misdemeanor.

“I had a shotgun in my hand, but I had it pointed at the floor,” Tribble testified Tuesday.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 5 at 3:30 p.m.
