Man Charged With Aggravated Assault and Battery Changes Plea

A Change of Plea hearing and subsequent sentencing was held Thursday in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan for 22-year-old Dustyn Kamensky, who is charged with Felony Aggravated Assault and Battery.

The charge stems from an incident during the early morning hours of Saturday, July 13 in Sheridan, when Kamensky pointed a loaded .45 caliber firearm in the face of another individual, and threatened to shoot the individual in the face.

Pursuant to terms of a plea agreement reached with the State, Kamensky pleaded guilty to the amended charge of Misdemeanor Reckless Endangering. District Court Judge John Fenn accepted the terms of the plea deal, and sentenced Kamensky to six months in jail, suspended in favor of one-year of unsupervised probation. Judge Fenn also ordered that a condition of Kamensky’s probation be that he cannot own a firearm until after he’s completed a gun safety course.

Sheridan County Attorney Dianna Bennett said that the initial felony charge was amended to a misdemeanor because Kamensky had absolutely no criminal history and that the victim didn’t want anything to do with the case and expressed that he didn’t want any repercussions for the defendant.
