ESCANABA - An Escanaba man pleaded no contest Friday to attempted felonious assault in connection with a knife assault at his residence on New Year's Day. The plea was made in Delta County Circuit Court.
Christopher Glenn Seymour, 23, was arrested during the early morning hours of New Year's Day after he allegedly threatened, then injured an Escanaba male at their residence, according to Escanaba Public Safety, the investigating agency.
Police were dispatched to the home at 2:45 a.m. that Sunday where a 33-year-old resident received injuries on his left hand. Seymour was arrested for felonious assault and lodged in the county jail in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond.
During his arraignment in Delta County District Court, he was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, also known as felonious assault. He was later bound over to circuit court where he opted to make a plea rather than go to trial.
Seymour is scheduled to be sentenced in circuit court on June 1 for attempted felonious assault which carries a maximum sentencing of two years in jail. He pleaded no contest to the charge because of intoxication at the time of the incident, according to his attorney James Viau.
