|U.S. Attorney’s Office October 23, 2012|
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that United States District Court Judge Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Charles Phillips, Jr., age 43, of Macy, Nebraska, for his conviction for assault on a child resulting in substantial bodily injuries. Phillips was sentenced to 18 months’ incarceration, to be followed by three years of supervised release. Phillips was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,193.35.
On April 2, 2011, Phillips got into an argument with his girlfriend. The girlfriend’s 13-year-old girl yelled at Phillips to leave her mother alone. Phillips cursed at the girl and then went over and stomped on her head. The girl was briefly knocked unconscious, and her nose was broken. In addition, the girl suffered from headaches for several days after the assault.
The case was investigated by the FBI.
