SC man pleads guilty to assaulting girlifriend

Posted: Updated:

YORK, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man has pleaded guilty to a criminal domestic violence charge after police say he assaulted his girlfriend by throwing a Blu-ray Disc player, a salt shaker and her own walker at her.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/1lXMpF3) 51-year-old Gregory Bailey of Fort Mill had been charged with attempted murder.

This week, a judge sentenced Bailey to eight years in prison. He was also ordered to seek batterer's counseling, to enroll in an alcohol and drug program and to pay the woman's medical bills.

Police and prosecutors said it appeared the woman also was hit in the head with a hammer. Assistant York County Solicitor Jenny Desch said the woman was unable to move when deputies found her in her house on Feb. 16.
