Jorge Aldape sentenced to 12 months probation in assault

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Milwaukee County judge sentenced 36-year-old Jorge Aldape on Monday, March 17th to 12 months of probation. He must also successfully complete "Batters Intervention" counseling and take part in an alcohol and drug assessment.

Aldape pleaded guilty in January to a single count of disorderly conduction in connection with an assault that took place at Pitney Bowes in Brown Deer in September 2013.

The criminal complaint in the case indicates Aldape and a female Pitney Bowes employee were engaged in an argument outside Pitney Bowes on Monday morning.

The complaint says Aldape had a hold of the woman’s arms while arguing with her, and two small children were present.

When another Pitney Bowes employee tried to calm the situation, Aldape threatened that man, and reportedly pulled a firearm from his vehicle, according to the criminal complaint.

The fight apparently began inside the break room at Pitney Bowes.

Surveillance video shows Aldape elbow the woman in the head, and one witness observed the two punching each other, according to the criminal complaint.

Aldape was also sentenced to 90 days in the House of Correction -- but that part of the sentence was stayed.
