A 29-year-old man who entered guilty pleas to three counts of fourth-degree assault of a peace officer will avoid jail time if he successfully completes three years probation.

Coni Lamark Shegog was originally charged with six counts of fourth-degree assault of a peace officer, all felonies, in connection to an incident involving a St. Paul police officer last March.

The St. Paul Police Department said Dominic Dzik, a 16-year veteran of the force, required a staple in his head to close the wounds suffered in the incident, which reportedly occurred on the 300 block of Cook Avenue East.

Shegog, of Chicago, originally pleaded not guilty to all six charges in April. But he entered amended guilty pleas to three charges in May. The other three charges were dismissed.

He was sentenced to 71 days in jail on each charge, with the sentences to be served concurrently. But a stay of imposition was issued on each provided Shegog successfully completes three years of supervised probation. He received three years probation on each charge, but that is also to be imposed concurrently.
