Noriel M. Carino, 32, was sentenced Jan. 3, following a 10-day trial last summer. The jury convicted him on charges of first, second and third-degree assault. It acquitted him on another first-degree assault charge.
The assault followed an argument between the victim and members of Carino’s family, according to the case against him.
On the morning of April 25, 2011 a man who had parked his vehicle at an Ole Johnson Avenue apartment complex went to see if repairs on the vehicle had been completed. A female member of Carino’s family came out of an upstairs apartment and yelled at him to move his vehicle. The woman went back upstairs and the man moved his vehicle. The woman’s father next went outside and confronted the victim about yelling at his daughter. Carion heard this argument and intervened, grabbing the victim’s shirt, pushing him and hitting him in the face and chest
The victim went to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center where he required surgery. He was found to have multiple fractured bones in his face.
Beyond his 5-1/2-year sentence, Carino was given 5-1/2 years of suspended time he could have to serve if he re-offends during five years of probation.
