CLAREMORE — A former Grove and Claremore U.S. Postal Service employee charged with sexually assaulting a Rogers County woman pleaded guilty to reduced assault charges and received a two-year suspended sentence, court officials said Wednesday.
James Monroe Bullis Sr., 48 of Claremore, was in Rogers County District Court Monday for trial on two counts of assault and battery by strangulation and rape by instrumentation and sexual battery.
Instead, he entered pleas to two misdemeanor counts of domestic assault and battery and was sentenced to a one-year suspended sentence on each charge. The sentences are to run consecutively, online court records show.
Bullis is also ordered to attend a yearlong domestic-violence class and have no contact with the victim. He is to return to court on June 20 for a review, records show.
The charges stem from a Jan. 22, 2012, offense in which the victim received minor injuries but was not treated at a hospital.
