Man gets probation in child assaults


Police also obtained an arrest warrant for Newell, but he did not turn up again until this May, when he was in custody in Plymouth County on unrelated charges. Newell is currently serving a sentence there and was brought to Salem to answer to the charges.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, Newell, who claims to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety, pleaded guilty to the assault counts involving the children; the charges related to his former girlfriend as well as a larceny count for the missing cell phone were dismissed.

Newell was sentenced to a year of probation.
