Aggravated assault is about as serious a charge as there is without the victim dying. It is a felony 1 with a mandatory minimum sentence of two years and depending on the extenuating circumstances people can spend 10-20 years in prison.

He sure needs to be put in prison. Locked up and throw away the key.

This person has been in jail multiple times already. Time to lock'em up and throw away the key, some people just can't be helped.

The constitution says a man is INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty and beyond that the Bible says in 1 Cor. 4:5 not to make judgments ahead of time, but clearly neither of those things hold any jurisdiction here. This man has been tried, judged and sentenced on a blog! It says on here that no messages that harass or abuse are allowed...perhaps we should define "harass" and "abuse".

Grow up people and mind your own business. Facebook and blogs give people the power to be anyone they want to be. It is freedom of speech (to an extent). This page says no harrasment and no threats. Where are the comments that were deleted, the comments on the defense? These same comments were the ones written by those people who actually know the story and the correct info, but we go ahead and delete the real truth.... and leave the ones that are threatening on here??? Apparently solomons word has facebook and has fell right into the judgemental ways with everyone else who knows nothing or either party involved for that matter. Pathetic.

All this fighting for womens rights? What about mens rights? Guilty untill proven innocent

It wasn't me that posted them so idc. All I'm saying is there are ppl on here threatining him. Why aren't they deleted

1st of all no one was on life support or anything like that.....I want to know how this person is going to get a fair trial when everyone has him guilty already not knowing the circumstances...... This girl gives battered women a bad name. We have came so far to help women who are abused & battered but we get someone who abuses men to the point where they snap & then cry "battered Women" it's a shame. women like this will make it harder for those who are really abused.... This girls brusies were on the outside. What about his brusies that were on the inside....... I'M not saying that he is not guilty or even that he is guilty for what happened....only that in this instance it took two to make this event happen.

He hit a woman. End of story. Its also not that hard to walk away or get in your car and take a drive when "your pushed too far". He is a coward that beat up a woman. Thats all there is to this story. No excuses

Anonymous said...

would you care if it was a woman that beat up a man? Just cuz she can't hurt him as bad that's ok huh?

Anonymous said...

I dont go around hitting people I was raised not too. I was also taught that if I did hit someone I should expect to get hit back. "End of Story"

I am that woman he abused. Yes I was on life support he busted my jaw, my nose, and had my mouth wired shut. I got scars all over my face and for your information your right everyone is innocent until proven guilty only thing is he got caught on camera beating me. So the next time any of you want to say I had something to do what he did to me YOU ARE WRONG!!! I simply went inside the acorn begged for help and was denied! The sad thing is he never thought about his daughter when he did this he has lost all rights to my daughter can't even see her not even through glass, and your right he should be locked up and the key thrown away! End of story....thank you!
