CLINTON — A Camanche man has pleaded guilty to carrying a weapon while on the job at the Clinton Streets Department.

Jon C. Hartsell, 50, of 217 13th Ave., Camanche, pleaded guilty to one count of carrying a weapon in connection with a Nov. 22 incident. A second count, which was filed in connection with a Nov. 25 incident, was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

Under that agreement, Hartsell was sentenced to 30 days in the Clinton County Jail, with 29 days suspended and credit given for one day served. He was fined $625 and will serve 12 months of probation.

A no-contact order also was put in place for 12 months that stipulates he cannot have contact with 18 employees of the Clinton Streets Department, including supervisor Gary Schellhorn.

Court documents state that through interviews with Public Works employees, authorities had alleged that Hartsell had carried this weapon within Clinton city limits at the Public Works garage on several occasions in 2008.

Court documents state that on Nov. 25, an employee of the Clinton Public Works Department notified his supervisor that Hartsell, the employee’s co-worker, carried a handgun at their workplace, the Public Works Street Division garage at 925 S. Third Street.

The court document indicates another employee reported seeing Hartsell lubricating the weapon in a city workshop at 925 S. Third St. on Nov. 22 and showed the co-worker bullets and clips from the weapon as he unloaded it in the breakroom.

He was accused Dec. 29 by Clinton police.
