Two additional charges of felony violate a domestic assault no contact order (DANCO) – within 10 years of the first of two or more convictions – were dismissed as part of a plea agreement reached on Nov. 27.

Judge Jeffrey Kritzer issued the sentence.

Court documents state that an Austin police detective was advised on May 7 that Green, an inmate at the Mower County Jail, had been contacting the victim of his domestic abuse charges in violation of a DANCO she had against him.

The detective monitored Green’s text messages and telephone records and found 21 text messages and 49 outgoing calls from Green to the victim’s phone.
