Placeholder Image
A man who bit his girlfriend has been sentenced to 20 days in jail.The defendant, Johnny Heath Goode, 23, was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to serve 20 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence for domestic assault. The guilty plea brought about a violation of his probation on his prior convictions on charges of burglary. However, both cases combined will cost him a total of 20 days in jail with the remainder to be spent on probation.Goode was charged late last year when his girlfriend called police and claimed her boyfriend had assaulted her.“She was very distraught and crying and stated she had been bitten by her boyfriend,” said McMinnville patrolman Robert Hammond, noting he saw a visible bite mark on her hand supporting her claim.The woman said her boyfriend told her he was moving out and began collecting his things.
