NORWICH – A man accused of pursuing his ex-girlfriend across the City of Norwich in a roving incident that included frantic 911 calls and a vehicle chase, pleaded guilty Monday to the top count against him.
Jason Doliver, 27, of 10 Northrup Ave., Norwich, was originally charged with two felonies and four lesser crimes, but pleaded guilty to second degree mischief, a felony, Monday in full satisfaction of the charges.
Police said Doliver rammed the victim’s vehicle with his own and took her cell phone in order to keep her from calling 911 during the incident that occurred March 4.
“All in defiance of a court order of protection forbidding him from having contact with the victim,” said First Assistant District Attorney Stephen M. Dunshee.
Dunshee said the plea was an agreed-upon disposition by the DA’s Office and that Doliver would received a split, six month sentence, to be served on the weekends in addition to time already served since his arrest.
The case was scheduled for trial this week, but after a conference Monday morning, Doliver pleaded guilty instead.
