Man sent back to prison for assault
An Albert Lea man convicted of felony domestic assault was sentenced Thursday in Mower County District Court to 30 months in prison.
Jason Lee Beloate, 30, was sentenced by Judge Donald E. Rysavy. Beloate was given credit for time served since Jan. 25.
A charge of felony first-degree damage to property and a gross misdemeanor charge of interfering with an emergency phone call were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
According to the criminal complaint, on Jan. 25, Beloate pushed his way inside a woman's home and started yelling at her.
When the woman tried to call the police, Beloate allegedly grabbed her by the arm, threw her down and took the phone from her. He later reportedly smashed the phone.
According to the complaint, Beloate then drove his vehicle through a closed garage door and into the woman’s vehicle, yelling, "Take that!"
When Austin police arrived, half the garage door was on the ground and the woman’s vehicle had been pushed into the front garage wall.
A review of Beloate's criminal history reveals six convictions on assault charges.
In November 2008, he was sentenced to 27 months in prison. That came on the heels of a 2007 one-year jail sentence following a conviction for fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct-non consensual contact.
