HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A 27-year-old man who entered a plea to one charge of aggravated battery and criminal damage to property was scheduled for sentencing Friday, but that was postponed because they didn’t transfer Jory Voss, so they continued it to a later date.
He entered the no contest plea to one of two counts of aggravated battery for choking a woman at a residence in Langdon back on Jan. 7. Another man at the residence reportedly struck Voss with some type of club to get him off the woman. Then those two began to fight. The man was struck by Voss, causing him to have four broken ribs. That victim was taken to an area medical facility for treatment.
Voss was also found guilty of causing damage inside the home, including throwing and breaking things inside.
As part of the agreement, he is serving his time for a drug case going back to 2013 and then the two sides will recommend three years of community corrections for the battery case. The corrections wouldn’t begin until the sentence in the drug case is served.
