WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A 29-year-old Maui man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for injuring his pregnant girlfriend over six hours.
The Maui News (http://bit.ly/11ZDLZv) reports Isaiah Shim in a plea deal pleaded no contest to counts including sexual assault, kidnapping and terroristic threatening.
Defense attorney James Brumbaugh at sentencing Friday called for a 10-year prison term. He says the 25-year-old victim spent several hours in a hospital but was not seriously injured.
He acknowledged that Shim on April 1, 2012, hit the woman with a pipe, burned her with a cigarette, squeezed her toes with pliers and sexually assaulted her with a beer bottle but said nothing in Shim's past indicated he was violent.
Deputy Prosecutor Kristin Coccaro says Brumbaugh's account minimized the victim's physical, sexual and psychological torture.
