Stone County man sentenced on assault, fleeing, and various other charges

A Stone County man recently arrested after a high-speed chase received his sentencing Tuesday. Jeremiah F. Knott was sentenced to five years in state prison with a ten-year suspended sentence and a fine of $5,000. Knott was also ordered to pay court fees and other costs in the amount of $1,415 as well as pay restitution in the amount of $250 to Sherry and Vick Horton at $100 per month within 60 days of Knott’s release from prison. Knott was also ordered to have no contact with Sherry and Vick Horton.

Knott’s charges of aggravated assault on a family or household member, possession of drug paraphernalia (two counts), failure to appear, fleeing and aggravated assault stemmed from a May 23 incident in which Knott assaulted his stepfather, Vick Horton, in Horton’s home. Knott was taken into custody Aug. 7 after a high-speed pursuit.
