East Grand Forks Man Sentenced For Assaulting Women

(East Grand Forks, MN) — An East Grand Forks man will serve 18 months in prison after he offered Norgaard guilty pleas to two assault charges Wednesday. A Norgaard plea is given when the defendant can’t remember committing the crime, usually due to being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The suspect, 34-year-old Joel Delonais, was arrested in early July after he attacked two women outside a home, one of whom he struck with a large piece of wood. One of the women suffered a concussion, a fractured wrist, and a cracked rib as a result of the attack.
