PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A 41-year-old man who fractured his mother’s eye socket, nose and some of her ribs has been sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Sean Tester punched, kicked and bit his mother’s face during the assault in the Corbett home they shared. Prosecutors say Tester then called 911 to report a home invasion, saying he found his mother injured after returning home from a bar Feb. 21.
Multnomah County Sheriff’s deputies arrived to find the woman in a pool of blood, but no signs that someone forced their way into the home. Tester eventually said there was no intruder, and described the assault in detail.
During a hearing Friday in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Tester pleaded guilty to assault and coercion — both constituting domestic violence. He also acknowledged that he’d violated his probation for previous arson and coercion convictions.
