Lansford man given jail term for assault

A Lansford man was sentenced to a county prison term on Thursday in Carbon County court on an assault count.

Jesse Tyler Flamisch, 25, was sentenced to serve three to 18 months on a charge of simple assault and one year probation on a charge of recklessly endangering another person. The terms run consecutively.

Flamisch previously pleaded to the charges.

Nanovic rejected a plea for a probation term, noting the facts of that case.

Flamisch was arrested on June 30, 2020, by Palmerton police along Route 248. He was in a vehicle with his then girlfriend when an altercation occurred in which he stabbed her in the leg with a screwdriver and struck her on the head.

Nanovic said Flamisch was spared additional jail time when the commonwealth declined to invoke the weapon enhancement provision of the law.

Flamisch denied he stabbed the woman.

He told the court he has a new girlfriend and is living with her and her four children in Lansford.

In addition to the prison term, Flamisch was ordered to get a mental health evaluation, supply a DNA sample, get his GED diploma, have no contact with the victim, pay court costs of about $1,000 and pay a $50 per month supervision fee while on parole.

He will begin the jail term 10 a.m. on April 23 and serve it on consecutive two-day weekends.
