Madison man sentenced on assault charge

A Madison man will serve time in jail on a simple assault charge.  27-year-old Travis Peneaux was sentenced Tuesday in Lake County Circuit Court on the misdemeanor Simple Assault charge and a felony charge of Failure to Appear.  

Circuit Judge Pat Pardy sentenced Peneaux to serve one year in the county jail on the assault charge.  The judge suspended all but 117 days of the sentence and gave Peneaux credit for seventeen days he had already served, so he will need to serve 100 days in jail.  

On the Failure to Appear charge, Judge Pardy sentenced Peneaux to serve two years in the state penitentiary, but suspended all of the prison time based on several conditions.  Some of those conditions include that he be on supervised probation for two years, and pay all costs and court-appointed attorney’s fees.  

Judge Pardy ordered that Peneaux’s sentences be served consecutively, but yet concurrent to a sentence he is currently serving time on from another county.
