Court Sentences Man For Attacking Girlfriend With Guitar
A Fall River man was sentenced to two to four years in state prison after being convicted of attacking his girlfriend with a guitar.
Gregg Miliote, a spokesman with the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office says that 34-year-old Casey Miller was sentenced this week after submitting an “unagreed plea” in Fall River Superior Court on Tuesday.
Miliote says Fall River Police were called to Miller's home on February 10.
Officers learned that Miller and his girlfriend had been out to a bar and, upon returning to the apartment, Miller became belligerent and violent and began destroying items inside.
Miliote says he then smashed a guitar over his girlfriend's head and punched her in the face.
Officers found pieces of guitar in the victim's and took her to Charlton Memorial Hospital, where she had to receive staples on her head due to the severity of the attack.
Miller must also serve two years of supervised probation upon his release.
The terms of Miller's probation include not having any contact with his victim, submitting to random drug and alcohol screening, completing an inpatient addiction program, and undergoing domestic violence counseling.
