HARTINGTON, Neb. -- A Randolph, Nebraska, man has been sentenced to prison for beating and choking a woman and then threatening a witness.
Evan Brandt, 36, had pleaded guilty in Cedar County District Court to first-degree domestic assault and terroristic threats. District Judge Paul Vaughan on Monday sentenced him to five to eight years in prison. Brandt must serve two and a half years before he's eligible for parole.
On May 27, Brandt assaulted the woman at a home in Randolph. Brandt later pointed a pellet gun at a witness who had intervened in the assault.
