Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Six months after a Fargo teen is allegedly accused of assaulting a Davies High School student, he is sentenced.
18-year-old Borris Dahn was facing four charges. Monday, two of those counts were dropped. His plea of not guilty changed to guilty.
It was March when 18-year-old Borris Dawn was charged following a confrontation with who he calls an ex-girlfriend.
Borris Dahn- Defendant: "Basically, she would not give my hat back and I got kneed in the private area, bitten and all of that stuff, and I had to do something to protect myself."
His self-defense would be captured on surveillance tape.
Dahn: "I stopped her, held her and brought her to the ground."
Dahn was originally charged with one count of felonious restraint. That charge was dropped to unlawful imprisonment, a misdemeanor, which he pleaded guilty to along with disorderly conduct.
Two charges of sexual and simple assault were dropped.
Dahn says he is not a violent person. Had he been, he would have pled guilty months ago and not fought for lesser charges.
Dahn: "I'm happy the way it went."
Charles Sheeley- Defense Attorney: "It was a reasonable resolution. I think my client was happy with it. I know the state was happy with the resolution."
Dahn is sentenced to unsupervised probation for the next 360 days.
He is not to have any contact with the 16-year-old teen.
This may not be the last you hear about Dahn. He told us he is also involved with a case involving money taken from a woman's purse.
