Man enters guilty pleas in assault of peace officer, domestic assault hearing
(ABC 6 News) – A 39-year-old man pleaded guilty to biting a peace officer’s arm and marijuana possession Thursday, during a hearing centered around five domestic assault and no-contact order violation charges.
Jarod Franke was arrested July 28 after a Rochester woman told police he had violated a Domestic Abuse No-Contact Order she filed against him.
When Rochester police attempted to take Franke into custody, Captain Casey Moilanen said he bit an officer on the arm.
Two charges of domestic abuse and obstructing the legal process from the July 28 arrest were dismissed.
Franke also appeared in court on four other cases related to domestic abuse, impeding a 9-1-1 call, and DANCO violations in 2021 and 2022.
Franke received five years’ probation in exchange for the guilty plea.
