Suspended sentence granted in case against Joplin man

A Joplin man has been assessed a suspended sentence and probation for a felony domestic assault on his girlfriend and mother of his children.

Circuit Judge David Dally sentenced Ryan J. Maynard, 28, to four years in prison for second-degree domestic assault at a hearing in Jasper County Circuit Court but suspended execution of the sentence and placed him on supervised probation instead for five years.

The judge also ordered that Maynard complete 75 hours of community service and that he receive credit for six months already served in jail.

Court and police records show the defendant was arrested on the charge following a disturbance Jan. 2 at 1321 S. Missouri Ave. An affidavit states that he came home to that address drunk, and began yelling at his girlfriend and hitting her and choking her. He subsequently threw a bag of canned goods at her as well as a full can of beer, forced her onto a couch and threatened to kill her.
