A Montgomery Township man who shot his estranged wife in the hand during a domestic dispute in January has been sentenced to 5-and-a-half months served to 23 months in county prison.
However, he will not serve that time. Instead, Pete Craig Tano, 42, of the 100 block of Richardson Road, will be on parole the remainder of his sentence, per orders of Judge Thomas Branca.
According to North Penn Life, Pete Craig Tano, 42, of the 100 block of Richardson Road, pleaded guilty July 26 to a misdemeanor charge of recklessly endangering another person .
All other charges were dismissed against Tano – aggravated assault, simple assault, possessing an instrument of crime and defiant trespass, according to the article.
In the article, Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Alec O’Neill is quoted as such:
This was a domestic situation that got completely out of control. By virtue of the plea, his jail sentence and the other terms of the plea, it is an acknowledgement that this situation was criminal.
Tano must also attend anger management and forfeit all his guns to county detectives.
