Thirty-year-old John Bowlen was convicted Thursday and sentenced to 24 months of probation.

He was also ordered to undergo evaluations for drugs, alcohol and mental health and get mental health and domestic violence treatment.

Bowlen had pleaded not guilty. The case was in Arapahoe County District Court in suburban Denver.
