A Providence man with multiple domestic offenses in South County has been ordered to serve a year at the ACI after pleading no contest in Washington County Superior Court on Nov. 13.
Superior Court Associate Justice Melanie Thunberg ordered Jeffrey Zaremba, 33, to serve a year at the ACI in return for a plea to a Rhode Island State Police charge of domestic assault stemming from an incident in June. Following his year at the ACI, Zaremba would serve four years probation and a four-year suspended sentence.
The charge was elevated from a misdemeanor to a felony because of Zaremba’s previous arrests. In return for his plea, an additional state police charge of domestic disorderly conduct was dismissed. The sentence was imposed starting on Nov. 26.
According to online court records and past stories by Patch, Zaremba, now of 77 Knight St., Providence, and formerly of 1110 Main St., Hopkinton, has several arrests in South County over the past several years, mostly for domestic offenses.

According to police files, Zaremba had married the woman earlier that day at Narragansett Town Hall. However, the woman refused to cooperate at the time of Zaremba’s court hearing, and as a result, a felony charge of domestic assault was dismissed.
