NH men sentenced in Maine assault

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — Three New Hampshire men are facing jail time in connection with the vicious beating of a Navy sailor in Portland’s Old Port.

In a plea agreement with prosecutors, 22-year-old Jacob Davidson, 23-year-old Christopher Hartt and 26-year-old Thomas Hartt pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault charges Monday in Cumberland County Superior Court. They were each sentenced to six months in jail.

The men were initially charged with felony assault in the May 25, 2008, beating of Odelmo Robinson folowing a three-hour “booze cruise” in Casco Bay. The Portland Press Herald said prosecutors offered a plea bargain because of the unreliability of witnesses who were intoxicated at the time.

Robinson, who was stationed at the Brunswick Naval Air Station, suffered severe head injuries but has since recovered.
