Cases against Oak Harbor real estate agent resolved

An Oak Harbor real estate agent who had been held in jail without bail is now free.

An Oak Harbor real estate agent who had been held in jail without bail is now free after the cases against him were resolved last week.

Under a plea bargain, Jerry Oliver, 43, pleaded guilty in Island County District Court last week to two counts of violation of a domestic violence no-contact order, both gross misdemeanors, according to the Island County Prosecutor’s Office.

Oliver was sentenced to time served, which was 60 days in jail, and two years probation on condition that he commit no further crimes, gets a substance abuse disorder evaluation and complete recommended treatment, and obey protection orders, the prosecutor’s office reported.

The plea deal was a global resolution of two superior court cases and one district court case against Oliver.

In a district court case, which was dismissed, Oliver was accused of assaulting his estranged wife’s boyfriend, according to court documents.

In the first superior court case, Oliver was arrested after allegedly pulling up next to his estranged wife and boyfriend while they were sitting in a car and allegedly making a threat last year.

Oliver was originally charged with felony harassment and violation of a no-contact order that barred him from contacting his estranged wife.

The harassment charge was dismissed as part of the resolution.

In March, Oliver was arrested again for allegedly refusing to leave a house after being ordered to by the court. He was still there when his estranged wife arrived, again violating the no-contact order. A gun was later discovered inside the house, the records show.

Prosecutors originally charged Oliver with unlawful possession of a firearm, felony harassment and two counts of violating court orders.

After he was arrested, Judge Carolyn Cliff ordered that Oliver be held without bail since he had violated the condition of release from the prior case and she said he “lost control” during a court hearing.

In the final resolution, all the charges in the third case were dismissed except for violating the domestic violence no-contact order against his wife.
