A Philadelphia man pleaded guilty on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, and was sentenced to 18 months to 48 months in state prison for assaulting Bucks County sheriff's deputies last year while trying to evade security protocols at the Bucks County Justice Center.
Jeffrey Dingle, 44, pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated assault and one count each of criminal trespassing, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
Dingle injured several deputies during the April 21, 2021, assault, causing them to go to Doylestown Hospital for treatment. One suffered a fractured orbital bone.
In addition to the state prison sentence, Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley sentenced Dingle to four years of probation and ordered him to pay $8,000.36 in restitution to cover the medical costs of the deputies.
