Ex-postal worker receives sentence
A former Grove and Claremore U.S. Postal Service employee charged with sexually assaulting a Rogers County woman pleaded guilty to reduced assault charges and received a two-year suspended sentence, court officials said Wednesday. James Monroe Bullis Sr., 48, of Claremore, was in Rogers County District Court on Monday for trial on two counts of assault and battery by strangulation and rape by instrumentation and sexual battery. Instead, he entered pleas to two misdemeanor counts of domestic assault and battery and was sentenced to a one-year suspended sentence on each charge. The sentences are to run consecutively, online court records show.
