A 22-year-old Sheridan man was sentenced in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan Thursday for the charge of Felony Property Destruction and Defacement, and two counts of misdemeanor Neglect of a Vulnerable Adult.

District Court Judge John Fenn accepted the terms of the plea agreement that was reached with the State, and sentenced Zachary Grasky to six months in jail with all but 60 days suspended and one-year of supervised probation for the misdemeanor charges, and 2 to 5 years in prison for the felony charge, suspended in lieu of two years of supervised probation. Grasky also received 60 days credit for time served.

The sentence for the felony charge will run consecutive to the sentence for the misdemeanor charges. Judge Fenn also ordered Grasky to pay $1,204 in restitution and $1,110 in various court costs and attorney fees. According to court documents, the charges stem from an incident last May, when Grasky, while an employee with Eagle Ridge Rehabilitative Services in Sheridan, transported two Eagle Ridge clients that were under his supervision, to his residence where he supplied alcohol to both of the individuals. During his arrest, Grasky was combative with law enforcement and kicked and damaged a patrol vehicle.
