Man wanted on assault charges sentenced

MARQUETTE — An Ishpeming man that was wanted by police for over a month for an alleged assault was sentenced in Marquette County Circuit Court today.

39 year old, David James was sentenced to 3–8 years in prison with credit to the 282 days he has already served.

This sentence is a result of a plea deal.

Bellmer was arrested last August when a woman escaped his residence saying she had been assaulted by Bellmer.

Bellmer was then charged with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and felonious assault.
