Cpl. Oestmann was charged for his response to Watson but was able to plea down to a misdemeanor assault charge, saving him from serving any jail time. The Post reports that the “plea deal stipulates that Oestmann’s guilty plea and the entire case will be wiped clean from his record if the corporal complies with court orders for a year as part of a deferred judgment.”
