BOZEMAN — A Three Forks man accused of hitting his pregnant sister in the mouth with a wrench during her wedding reception has pleaded no contest to criminal endangerment.
David Sicotte, who appeared in District Court on Wednesday, was initially charged with assault with a weapon but agreed to plead no contest to the lesser charge in exchange for a deferred sentence.
Prosecutors say Sicotte arrived at the reception uninvited Aug. 27, pushed his sister's new mother-in-law to the ground and started fighting with the groom. Witnesses say he later came at his sister with the wrench.
The bride told police she slapped her intoxicated brother and he responded by hitting her with the wrench.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports District Judge John Brown will decide during a May 25 hearing whether to adopt the plea deal.
