Man who held York woman against her will, beat her, gets probation

YORK – Timothy Hawkins of Carleton, Nebraska, has been sentenced to probation in a case that began with high level felonies related to kidnapping and assault.

He was initially accused of taking a York woman against her will and beating her. Court documents indicate the female victim suffered “a ruptured right ear drum and a concussion.” Investigators also said he held her against her will in his vehicle while he repeatedly hit and punched her.

He was initially charged with kidnapping, a Class 1A felony; first degree assault, a Class 2 felony; and criminal mischief, a Class 1 misdemeanor. As part of a plea agreement, all the charges were amended to one count of third-degree domestic assault, a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Following the plea agreement, he was facing a possible maximum sentence of one year in jail.

This week in York County District Court, he was sentenced to two years of traditional probation, to include 83 days in jail, in the future, to be served in stints, which can be waived if he is found to be in compliance with the terms of his probation.
