☛ ER Man gets 9 years, 8 months for domestic abuse
A man who pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges in connection to a week-long assault on his girlfriend was sentenced Thursday to nine years and eight months in prison.
Anthony Ryan Workman, who was 20 when arrested, pleaded guilty in June to inflicting corporal injury on a co-habitant resulting in traumatic condition, making threats to commit a crime that would result in death or great bodily injury (a strike) and probation violation. He also pleaded guilty to a special allegation of personally inflicting great bodily injury, which makes the inflicting corporal injury on a co-habitant charge a strike. Judge Dale Reinholtsen handed down the sentence.
Workman was suspected of beating his girlfriend over the course of a week, which resulted in a broken jaw and fractured eye socket. Deputy District Attorney Ben McLaughlin, in a previous interview, said Workman beat his girlfriend and allegedly hit her multiple times in the face because he believed she’d been unfaithful.
