Devinci Osiris Dumas, 21, of Grand Rapids, was found guilty of assault charges by a jury today in Lake County Trial Court's 79th District. The charges stemmed from an incident with a Michigan Department of Natural Resources conservation officer in March.
Felony charges against Dumas include:
"The department and community are fortunate that our officer is doing well and has since resumed regular duties," said Lt. Joe Molnar, DNR district law supervisor. "We're grateful, not only for the training and equipment our officers receive to ensure their safety while on patrol, but also to the two citizens who stopped and assisted the officer in getting the assailant back under control."
Dumas is expected back in court for sentencing at a later date.
Michigan DNR conservation officers are fully commissioned state law enforcement officers who provide natural resources protection, ensure recreational safety and protect residents by providing general law enforcement duties and lifesaving operations in the communities they serve.
