A 19-year-old male convicted of felony terroristic threats after punching and attacking another student at an Austin-area boarding school in February has been sentenced to 120 days in Mower County Jail because he violated his probation.

According to court documents, Adrian Robert Maloney failed to abstain from the use or possession of alcohol or controlled substances and did not advise his probation agent before changing his residence.

The incident in question occurred at Gerard Academy, located off Interstate 90 near the Austin Country Club, at around 10:35 a.m. on Feb. 11.

According to a criminal complaint, Maloney attacked a 16-year-old male who intervened while Maloney and another student were arguing.

Maloney punched the 16-year-old, then put him in a choke hold until he passed out. Two teachers in the room were able to break the choke hold within five to 10 seconds and separate the two teenagers.

The 16-year-old victim was taken to Austin Medical Center with moderate injuries, including a swollen lip and scratches to his neck, arms and head.

Records show that Maloney was previously convicted on a juvenile battery charge in Florida in June 2007.

Maloney will receive credit for time he served in a Georgia jail while he was on Minnesota extradition.
