Nulato man, 40-year-old Neil J Madros, changed his plea in a plea agreement for an incident that occurred on August 20th, 2013 in that community. Madros was originally charged with Attempted Murder after injuring another man in the community and attempting to drown him in a 3-inch-deep mud puddle.
This Tuesday, Madros, in court pleaded Guilty to the reduced charge of Assault III for that incident. Madros also pleaded Gui;ty to another charge of Assault for driving around recklessly in the community putting other villagers in fear of injury or death.
It was on another Tuesday 10 months ago that Madros and three others were drinking in the community of Nulato. The victim, in a statement to troopers stated that prior to the incident, two others that were drinking with them got up to get water. It was then that Madros began threatening the victim’s family. When the victim, identified as K.K., attempted to walk away from Madros, Madros pushed him down into a mud puddle and told him that he was going to drown him. While face-down in the 3 inch deep puddle, Madros struck the victim in the head with an unidentified object causing a would that would later take 13 staples to close.
After that incident, Madros was later seen driving around the community recklessly in a red truck. He continued to careen around the village in the truck until the VPSO in the community took the valve stems out of the tires disabling the vehicle. But, even that did not stop Madros, he just acquired another vehicle and continued. He was later stopped by the VPSO. He put several people in fear of injury and death by those actions, and so was charged with an additional four counts of Assault.
In court, Madros was allowed to plead to the lesser charge of Assault III for the attack on K.K., but the court added a stipulation that Madros will be sentenced beyond the sentencing range of a first time felony offender for the charge. Three of the other four charges of assault were dropped and Madros pleaded Guilty to one charge. Madros received a suspended sentence for that plea.
Under the plea agreement, Madros will be sentenced to 20 months in jail with credit for time already served. With time served, Madros will be released in August. A court date for sentencing has yet to be scheduled.
