    Deadly weapon

    charge dropped

    Rutland County prosecutors have dismissed a Mount Holly man’s charge of assault with a deadly weapon.

    Months after Nathan M. Turco, 35, was charged with the felony offense, prosecutors dropped the charge as part of a plea deal in which Turco pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of simple assault.

    Turco also admitted to violating his probation for a prior offense and was sentenced in March to serve 111 days in jail with credit for time served, according to court records.

    Vermont State Police arrested Turco in November after an incident at a home on Shunpike Road in Mount Holly, where a 17-year-old told police that Turco held a knife to his throat and threatened him.

    Prosecutors did not explain in court filings why the felony assault charge was dropped.
