Judge Sentences Man to Spend Christmas in Jail for Next Five Years

A Livingston, Mont. judge has given a man accused of assaulting a woman an unusual sentence.
District Court Judge Nels Swandal gave Daniel Martz a 10-year suspended sentence on Monday for a May 2009 attack in which Martz allegedly choked and hit a woman, and then tried to have her change her story. Swandal also ordered Martz to report to jail each Dec. 15 through Jan. 1 for the next five years, according to the Livingston Enterprise. Swandal says incarcerating Martz around the holidays will keep him out of trouble. Park County Attorney Brett Linneweber says Martz's arrest record shows he has gotten into trouble before during holidays.
Guess, you shouldn't expect any Christmas gifts from this guy -- at least for five years.
