An Ironton man accused of assaulting a city police officer was sentenced last week to 120 days on electronic home confinement and four years under community controlled sanctions after pleading no contest to charges that he assaulted a city police officer last year.

David L. Barrow, 24, 401 S. Eighth St., Ironton, was indicted last month on one count of assault on a police officer. His girlfriend, Meghan Boggs, 22, 1045 Fourth St. East, South Point, was arrested on one count of obstructing official police business. Authorities say Barrow became involved in a fight at Shenanigan's in downtown Ironton on Sept. 22, 2002. During the incident, Barrow allegedly assaulted an Ironton police officer who responded to the call at the establishment. Boggs allegedly tried to interfere with authorities while her boyfriend was being arrested.

Also last week: Steven Easterling, 26, of 1811 S. Second St., Ironton, pleaded guilty to two counts of felony non-support. He was sentenced to 90 days in the Lawrence County Jail on each charge, to be served concurrently, and four years of community controlled sanctions. He was also ordered to pay $11,251.35. If he violates the terms of his sentence, he faces 11 months in prison.
