My now-ex abusive boyfriend tried to smother me, so now he is in jail on felony assault. I don't think he has any other domestic violence convictions but I think he had a previous assault charge about 10 years ago. I don't know if he served time or went through a diversion program. Other than that he has some misdemenor MJ possession and DWI on his record. The sentencing can be 2-10 years on this, but will he really get at least 2 years? I'd be happy with 6 months in county jail and probation- I don't want to have any contact with him, but I also don't want to send him to prison for 2-10. Realistically in Dallas County what could he get sentenced to? Thanks!I found out his previous assault charge was in 1997- he got 1 yr probation, 180 days jail, anger management classes, 80 hours community service. I don't know if he actually served the jail time- I think it was deferred. He went back to jail a couple times for probation violations and the case finally settled in 2000.
