Danville resident Dylan B. Wright was convicted by a jury this week in connection with a New Year’s Eve assault in 2019. But things could have been a lot worse for him. Wright, 38, was tried on a felony charge of aggravated assault after being accused of punching Evan Kennison, 52, in the face after Kennison entered Wright’s home. Wright was facing a possible sentence of up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted. The court then sentenced Wright to a fully suspended 6-12 month sentence with one year of probation. Wright will not have to serve any jail time unless he violates the terms of his probation.
