HAMILTON — A 31-year-old Hamilton man has pleaded guilty to his role in a vigilante-style beating of a man suspected of stealing marijuana and other items from a medical marijuana dispensary.
The Ravalli Republic reports Kory M. Gassman pleaded guilty Wednesday to felony counts of accountability for assault with a weapon and conspiracy to commit assault with a weapon. Under the terms of the plea agreement, Gassman will receive a four-year deferred sentence, but will have to give up any claim to nearly $20,000 in cash found in a codefendant's truck.
Gassman will also be required to testify in other cases involving the beating of 22-year-old Beau Miller last May.
One man involved in the beating has pleaded guilty and another has said he will accept a plea agreement. The case against the dispensary's owner, Tracy Moser, continues.
