Former Twin Cities radio personality Jeff Dubay was convicted Thursday on an assault charge and sentenced to 120 days in jail, but with the option to serve via a treatment program.

Dubay pleaded guilty in December to third-degree assault stemming from an incident last summer in which he was accused of physically assaulting a woman in a Cottage Grove home.

The longtime host on KFAN also worked for 1500ESPN.

His sentencing record indicates Dubay could avoid jail with the successful completion of a treatment program through Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge. Should he opt out of the program, Dubay would have to report to jail.

Dubay was further sentenced to five years' supervised probation. 

He was sentenced in August 2016 to about six months in jail and 10 years' probation for methamphetamine possession. In that case, he was ordered to complete a drug treatment program. 

He was fired from KFAN after a 2008 arrest for cocaine possession.
