A Collins man convicted of attempted domestic violence, aggravated menacing and other charges was sentenced this morning to three years and 11 months in prison.

Huron County Common Pleas Judge James Conway also ruled that the shotgun Gerald J. Hunter, 29, used in the crime would be forfeited to the state. Conway also placed Hunter, who wore a prison outfit, to three years post release control because of threats the defendant made.

Acting upon a tip, Norwalk police arrested Hunter at 1:07 a.m. today at a Bouscay Avenue apartment.

He had been free on a $100,000 bond posted Sept. 9. But when he skipped a hearing Wednesday, authorities issued a warrant for his arrest.
