KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A Kalamazoo man has admitted to attacking someone last summer.
Juan Richards pleaded guilty Wednesday to a count of third-offense domestic abuse as a second-time habitual offender.
The charge carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine; Richards’ prison term could be longer because he is a habitual offender.
Authorities say Richard assaulted the same person twice in June 2020, including once while armed with a gun after he was released from jail following the initial assault.
The original charges against him included attempted murder.
