Christmas Day assault results in jail sentence

A man who beat his common-law girlfriend early Christmas morning has been jailed for the assault, and for a scuffle with police that followed.

Crown attorney Marnie Evans told Brandon court this week that a woman called 911 on Christmas Day around

2 a.m. to report that she’d been assaulted by her common-law partner, Cory Joel Williams.

Police arrived at the home to find Williams drunk, sitting on a bed holding a king can of beer and a “very young child.” There was blood on the floor.

The child was escorted from the room before Williams began to struggle with police. He was taken down onto the mattress and it took three officers to get control of him and take him to a police car.

The victim told police that Williams had punched her several times in the head.

A 22-month old child and a six-year-old were in the room at the time. Two other children were in another room.

One side of the victim’s face was swollen, and she needed five stitches to close a cut above her eye. She also had a black eye and bruises on her arm.

She had “goose egg” injuries to her temple and the back of her head.

On Thursday, 33-year-old Williams pleaded guilty to assault and resisting police. He also pleaded guilty to later offences — two counts of failing to attend court and breach of his release order by drinking.

Williams was sentenced to 150 days in jail, minus 48 days presentence custody for the assault and struggle with police.

On top of that, he got another 60 days in jail for his failure to attend court and breach charges.

His jail sentence will be followed by 18 months probation.
