Former Grand Forks officer gets community service

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- A former Grand Forks police officer convicted of disorderly conduct in a gun-related incident at a party has been sentenced to 100 hours of community service.

A jury late last year convicted 28-year-old Jace Prelip of the misdemeanor charge but found him not guilty of the more serious charge of felony terrorizing.

Prelip also must complete a chemical dependency evaluation. If he successfully completes a year of unsupervised probation the charge will be removed from his record.

Prelip was accused of holding an unloaded gun to another man's head during a party in August 2012. He resigned from the police force a few days later. He could have faced up to five years in prison had he been convicted of terrorizing.
