Nose-biter gets two years
Placeholder Image

A man has been sentenced to two years in prison for biting his ex-wife’s nose and beating her with a tire iron.
The defendant, Jason Keith Bouldin, 37, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to charges of domestic assault, vandalism, resisting arrest, and possession of drugs. He was given a two-year sentence and ordered to make $750 restitution to the victim. His sentence will be served in addition to time he owes the state for violation of his parole.
His sentence comes for attacking his ex-wife while at a friend’s residence on Old Beersheba Road after he became mad saying she did not respect him.
“He punched me in the mouth and bit me on the nose and punched me on both sides of my head with a closed fist,” the victim recalled in her warrant. “He then picked up a Coleman fuel can and hit me on the left side of my head and then took a tire tool and hit me on the hand two times.”
The judicial commissioner who signed the warrant noted the woman had obvious injuries from the attack. She also told the commissioner Bouldin had threatened to beat her to death several times, leaving her in fear for her life. He also took her vehicle after the attack.
Deputies later went to a location on Harrison Ferry Mountain where they found Bouldin had gotten the stolen vehicle stuck. Bouldin was uncooperative and had to be physically subdued when they arrested him on the assault warrant. Officers also found an assortment of drugs on his person, including marijuana and pills.
