    Why was he on probation, who was the judge?

    The sooner "they" lock him up and leave him there, the better off we'll all be.

    I have my own opinion about what they should do to him but I'm pretty sure I should keep that to myself.

    He won't go to jail. He will be placed back on probation. I will place a bet on that!

    What made him think he could do this to this woman and not get caught. I hope they send him back to jail for the rest of his life. Poor excuse for a man.

    Back to prison he will now go. He broke his probation. These guys don't think. Assaulting this lady in front of her children tell you he has not learn respect for females and others. Send him back to prison for 20 years. Maybe by that time he will have learned something.
