Wife beater sent to jail for 28 months

A man who pleaded guilty to felonious restraint involving domestic violence has been sentenced to 28 months in jail.

On March 10, 2022, the Leone Police Substation received a phone call from a woman regarding her niece being assaulted by her husband.

Cops arrived at the scene and observed injuries on the victim’s face and took photos of the injuries.

The defendant pleaded guilty to felonious restraint involving domestic violence, and the misdemeanor charges were dismissed.

The defendant, who has been in custody since his arrest in March of this year, apologized to the court for his action and pleaded for another chance to return home to be with his family.

The defendant has a previous conviction in District Court for similar offenses.

He was represented by former public defender Michael White in the case which was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Angela Drummond.
