AUGUSTA — A Windsor man was ordered Monday to serve an extra four months behind bars for failing to report to jail on time and a separate charge of assaulting a jail officer.

Kenneth J. Dulac, 59, was on the lam from June 30 to Sept. 15, 2011, when he was arrested at the Togus veterans hospital by Maine State Trooper Kyle Pelletier.

On Monday in Kennebec County Superior Court, Dulac pleaded guilty to failing to report to jail on June 30, 2011, and to a charge of assault on an officer Sept. 15, 2011, while he was at the jail.

Dulac originally was sentenced May 10, 2011, in the same court to eight years in prison with all but 18 months suspended and three years of probation after being convicted on charges of robbery, burglary of a motor vvehicle and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer.

A judge granted an initial stay of execution, allowing Dulac to report to jail June 30, so he could undergo a series of medical tests.

The robbery occurred around 4:40 p.m. June 14, 2010, when Dulac approached a woman sitting in her car outside Hussey’s General Store in Windsor and demanded her purse at gunpoint. The 60-year-old woman refused, and he fled.

The burglary of a Hussey employee’s motor vehicle — from which Dulac stole change — occurred around the same day, police said.

Armed with a description of the robber and his vehicle, police arrested Dulac the next night and found evidence of the robbery in a search of his home.

Two other people were sentenced Monday in separate hearings in Kennebec County Superior Court:

* Darryl L. Copeland, 30, of Hartford, Conn., unlawful possession of scheduled drugs Dec. 14, 2011, violation of condition of release and failure to give correct name April 1, 2012, all in Waterville; four-year jail sentence, all but nine months suspended, two years of probation; $400 fine, $100 restitution.

* Stephanie M. Haskell, 35, of Augusta, four counts of burglary, three counts of theft and one count of criminal attempt, all between Jan. 1, 2011 and April 26, 2011, in Augusta; three-year jail sentence, all but 10 days suspended (to be served in the alternative sentencing program) two years of probation, up to $2,500 restitution.
