OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – A 43-year-old northeast Nebraska man has been given 18 months in prison for stomping on the head of a teenage girl.
A news release from the office of U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg (gihlj) says Charles Phillips Jr., of Macy, was convicted of assault on a child resulting in substantial bodily injuries.
Phillips must serve three years of supervised release after he leaves federal custody and must pay restitution of nearly $1,200.
Gilg’s office says Phillips got into an argument with his girlfriend on April 2 last year. When the girlfriend’s 13-year-old daughter yelled at Phillips to leave her mother alone, Phillips cursed the girl and stomped on her head.
