Bobbitt Convicted on Second Domestic Battery Charge

September 28, 1994

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ John Bobbitt has been convicted of beating his former fiancee. Again.

″One thing is apparent and that is that you are a bully,″ Judge Ron D. Parraguirre told Bobbitt Tuesday. ″I don’t know how we’re going to get this across to you that this is unacceptable behavior.″

Parraguirre found Bobbitt guilty of domestic battery and sentenced him to 30 days in jail, then released him pending appeal.

Bobbitt headed to Los Angeles for a pair of public appearances, including Thursday’s premiere of his hard-core pornographic movie, ″John Wayne Bobbitt ... Uncut.″ He plays himself.

Bobbitt planned to go on stage tonight during a taping of ″Evening at the Improv″ and have knives thrown at him, said his agent, Aaron Gordon.

Kristina Elliott testified that her former fiance twisted her arm behind her back and threw her against an apartment wall on May 6.

Bobbitt served 12 days of a 15-day sentence earlier this month for battering Elliott on another occasion.

He gained national attention last year when his wife, Lorena, sliced off his penis, claiming he raped her. The penis was surgically reattached and Bobbitt was found innocent of sexual assault. Mrs. Bobbitt was found innocent by reason of insanity and filed for divorce.

Bobbitt, 27, met Elliott, 21, a former exotic dancer, while in Las Vegas on a publicity tour.
