BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ A 31-year-old Nampa man has been sentenced to four to 15 years in prison for brutalizing his former girlfriend over a period of two days last year.
The Idaho Statesman reports Darren Carmouche was sentenced Monday by 3rd District Judge James Morfitt.
A jury found Carmouche guilty in November of second-degree kidnapping, domestic battery, aggravated battery and attempted strangulation.
The woman testified Carmouche punched her, ran her head into walls, tried to strangle her and hit her in the legs and body with a baseball bat.
Canyon County prosecutors had sought a sentence of 15 to 55 years because Carmouche has three previous felony convictions and violated a no-contact order after he was convicted.
He will receive credit for the year he has already spent in jail.
