AUGUSTA — A Litchfield man was ordered to serve 28 months in prison Wednesday for assaulting his then-girlfriend and in a separate case for walking out of an Augusta convenience store with Twisted Tea after the debit card purchase was rejected.

Ralph A. Mosher IV, 26, pleaded guilty to domestic violence assault and violation of condition of release, which occurred May 3, 2014, in Litchfield, and to theft by unauthorized taking, refusing to submit to arrest and violation of condition of release, which occurred Feb. 7, 2014, in Augusta.

Assistant District Attorney Tracy DeVoll told the judge that the domestic violence assault occurred during an incident when he and his girlfriend were arguing in a vehicle and he threw keys at her and then got out of the car. She also described the theft of the liquor.

Mosher’s prison term is to run concurrent to a 25-month probation revocation on a previous conviction.

Both DeVoll and Mosher’s attorney, Adam Sherman, told Justice Michaela Murphy that Mosher will no longer be on probation when he has finished serving the prison term.

Several other charges pending against Mosher were dismissed as part of the plea.

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

• Joshua S. Laury, 29, of Benton, operating while license suspended or revoked Nov. 5, 2013, in Waterville; $250 fine.

• Lorraine Marie Conlogue, 31, of Oakland, theft by unauthorized taking Sept. 25, 2014, in Waterville; seven-day jail sentence.
