WAKEFIELD — The following Westerly police cases were heard in 4th Division District Court on Friday.

Giuseppe Gabriele, 43, 11 Surrey Drive, Westerly, pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic disorderly conduct, domestic vandalism/malicious injury to property and domestic simple assault and/or battery. Gabriele was charged with using a blow torch to get into the alleged victim’s home and saying “you’re going to die tonight.” He is also charged with assaulting the woman. He was released on a promise to appear on Aug. 1. A no-contact order remains in place.

Sarah, 32, and David, 29, Cordeiro, of 7 Vose St., Westerly, each pleaded no contest to charges of shoplifting. Each was sentenced to a one-year prison term, which was suspended, and one year of probation. They were also ordered not to trespass at Walmart in Westerly.

James Flannery, 28, of North Hampton, Mass., pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Westerly Police Lt. Phil Williams asked that Flannery be referred to pretrial services for alcohol and substance abuse screening and random monitoring. Judge Quirk asked Williams why he believed that was necessary, and he uncomfortably related that Flannery had stripped and smeared feces on the wall of the Westerly police station cell and was later transferred to The Westerly Hospital. He was released on a promise to appear on Aug. 8.

Wyeth A. O’Neill, 22, 786 Pequot Trail, Stonington, pleaded no contest to charges of disorderly conduct and possession of Class C fireworks. The charge was filed, meaning if O’Neill remains out of legal trouble for a year the charge will be expunged from his record.

Kristina L. Gardiner, 35, of 4630 South County Trail, Charlestown, pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obtaining a vehicle with intent to defraud. She was released on a promise to appear July 25.

She was released on a promise to appear on Aug. 8.

Derek Bates, 30, of Munson, Mass., pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic assault and domestic disorderly conduct after police said he “punched a female in the face three times.” He was released on $2,000 with surety, or $200, and a no-contact order with the alleged victim was continued.

John Smith, 53, 11 Sparrow Drive, Charlestown, pleaded not guilty to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. After police stopped Smith, he reportedly told them he had 10 teeth removed and was on pain medication. The chemical test determined intoxication of .00. He refused further testing.

Laura Smith, 45, of Jamestown, pleaded no contest to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, first offense, blood alcohol content unknown.

She was released on a promise to appear on Aug. 1.
