Three people have been placed under community control in Defiance County Common Plea Court in separate felony assault cases.

The most serious concerned Christopher M. Forrey, 33, Defiance, who was placed under community control for four years by Judge Joseph Schmenk on felony assault, a second degree felony.

He was also ordered to reimburse the victim (his father) for $ 42,752.69 and to complete the SEARCH program in Bowling Green. A prison sentence totaling 5 to 7 1/2 years has been reserved in case he violates the terms of community control.

The prosecution alleged that on June 7, Forrey assaulted his father, Christopher A. Forrey, pushing him down and causing him a serious hip injury. The victim was taken to the Defiance Regional Medical Center before being transferred to a hospital in Toledo, according to Defiance County Prosecutor Morris Murray.

He said the incident stemmed from a dispute between Forrey and his father with whom he was staying temporarily on Pierce Street.

“This was a serious assault on a family member and created a very significant risk of more serious problems for the victim,” he said. “From what I understand, he (the victim) continues to treat his injuries, but is recovering.”

In a related case, Jakob Schoenauer, 23, 200 1/2 Clinton St., was placed under community control for three years on a charge of attempted criminal assault, a third degree felony; and aggravated riot, a fourth degree felony. A 47-month prison sentence has been reserved in case he violates the terms of community control.

The prosecution alleged that on September 17, 2020, Schoenauer attempted to assault another man (Maurice Washington, 19, 700 Pierce St.) in an incident involving several other people in a parking lot on Defiance’s First Street. The victim was not seriously injured.

Washington, Schoenauer and several others have also been charged with aggravated riot in a brawl involving a number of individuals at the same location.

Washington was placed under community control for two years for attempted aggravated riot, a fifth degree felony.

In a third case, Tony Muldrow, 46, 1373 Moll Ave., was placed under community control for three years on a charge of aggravated assault, a fourth degree felony. A 17-month prison sentence has been reserved in case he violates the terms of community control.

An underlying indictment of felony second degree felony was dismissed.

According to Murray, Muldrow punched Elias Madrigal in the face during an April 13 dispute over an auto repair. He was treated and released to a local hospital.
