KOSHKONONG -- A Koshkonong man received five years in state prison on an assault charge last week.
According to a report from the Oregon County Sheriff's Office, the sentence will be suspended if he completes five years probation.
On March 1, Thomas William Lobo, 30, of Koshkonong appeared in the 37th Judicial District County Circuit Court before Judge R. Jack Garrett.
Garrett found Lobo guilty of assault.
The charges stem from an incident Aug. 3, 2003, at the Lobo home where a get-together took place.
Reports from the sheriff's office state that an argument occurred between Lobo and Jeffrey Coffel, also of Koshkonong.
The report stated the argument resulted in Lobo swinging a knife at Coffel, cutting him twice in the chest.
