A West Lafayette man was sentenced Tuesday in connection with the severe beating of his girlfriend that involved a Shake Weight dumbbell in November 2011.
Jonathan Noe, 20, was sentenced to four years in prison. However, with 946 days credit for time already served and good behavior, Noe could be released in less than nine months.
Noe will then be required to serve two years of probation. The terms of his probation include that Noe must live with his father or an approved group home for the first year of his probation, maintain good and lawful behavior, waiver his fourth amendment rights regarding search and seizure, undergo substance abuse evaluation and treatment, attend an anger management program and have no contact with the victim.
According to the probable cause affidavit, an officer was dispatched to a home in West Lafayette on Nov. 9 in reference to a female who claimed she was beaten by her boyfriend. The officer noted the victim’s eyes and mouth were swollen shut. The officer also stated the victim had four teeth knocked loose.
The affidavit stated the girl told an officer Noe came home from a party unhappy and began hitting her. She told the officer she was unconscious at one point but remembers being hit, kicked and grabbed by Noe. The victim also stated she remembered being hit repeatedly with a Shake Weight dumbbell and choked.
Additionally, court documents revealed Noe violated a protective order issued for him to stay away from the victim.
Medical records stated the victim suffered from a subdural hematoma to the head, a fracture of the right orbital bone, a broken nose, multiple contusions, extensive facial injuries, a concussion, loss of consciousness and blowout fracture of facial bones.
