Derry man sentenced for assault, threatening
Joseph Greenquist, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault, criminal threatening and being a felon in possession of a weapon as part of a negotiated plea deal with county prosecutors.
Derry police arrested Greenquist on the night of July 29 after his girlfriend fled from her Everett Street apartment and reported the assault.
He propped a chair against the door to keep her from getting out.
He then started “pulling the trigger and working the action of a shotgun while positioned outside of a closet so that (she) could hear the weapon while trapped inside,” prosecutors said. Greenquist has been in county jail for 291 days, which will count toward his state prison sentence. He was indicted on two counts of criminal threatening, six counts of simple assault and charges of false imprisonment, second-degree assault and being a felon in possession of a weapon.
Greenquist could have faced up to 20 years behind bars and a $4,000 fine had he been convicted by a jury.
Greenquist was barred from having a weapon because of a 2006 burglary conviction in Strafford County Superior Court.
