A former Davison County state’s attorney who is already incarcerated for manslaughter will be sentenced in Arizona next week regarding two additional felony charges.
Dan Gukeisen, 39, pleaded guilty on Nov. 10 to one count of aggravated assault and one count of kidnapping, said Jerry Cobb, Maricopa County public information officer.
The charges stem from a Jan. 26 incident when a 74-year-old man served papers to Gukeisen at his home.
Gukeisen apparently pulled a gun on the process server and held him down at gunpoint.
The papers being served were not related to Gukeisen’s May conviction for the stabbing death of a 22-year-old Arizona State University student in 2008. The papers were for a separate civil matter, Cobb said.
Gukeisen was originally charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping and criminal damage/defacing as a result of the assault on the paper-server, Cobb said.
In exchange for his guilty plea, Gukeisen will likely serve 6½ years in prison, which would be served concurrently with the five-year manslaughter sentence. He would also serve five years probation.
“The judge is expected to impose this sentence, but he could impose something else,” Cobb said.
