Neadeau pleads no contest to criminal endangerment
POLSON – A St. Ignatius man had the imposition of sentencing deferred for a period of six years during a sentencing hearing at District Court in Polson on Dec. 9 after entering a no contest plea to criminal endangerment. Donald Adam Neadeau, 19, was initially charged with sexual intercourse without consent, but the charge was amended to criminal endangerment as part of a plea agreement that took into account a lack of physical evidence.
According to court records, on Dec. 14, 2020, a “Jane Doe” reported that a co-worker had sexually assaulted her in the restroom at their place of work while brandishing a kitchen knife.
Judge John W. Larson of Missoula presided over the case. He gave Neadeau credit for having served 242 days in the Lake County jail and ordered him to pay restitution totaling $5,016.
