A man will serve 100 days behind bars for assaulting his wife after she told him it was over.
The man, Richard Lee Rose II, 32, of Manchester was ordered by Judge Bill Locke to serve 100 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence and must make restitution, enter the batterer prevention program, undergo an alcohol and drug assessment and mental health evaluation for domestic assault, failure to appear in court, and violating an order of protection.
Rose’s sentence comes after he violated an order of protection and tapped on his wife’s window just before midnight. He told her he had left his key in her van when, earlier in the day, she had given him a ride to the dentist despite the order of protection directing them to stay away from one another.
Unable to find the key, Rose grabbed his estranged wife and slammed her up against the van, according to the arrest warrant against him. He then made unwanted sexual advances, prompting her to tell him their relationship was over.
She pushed him away and rushed inside her house. Moments later she heard a loud hissing sound and went outside to discover he had slashed both of her passenger-side tires. The tires were valued at $280.
