Man gets 7 years for choking, pouring bleach on girlfriend
NEWARK, Del. (AP) — A Delaware man who pleaded guilty to choking his girlfriend and pouring bleach on her has been sentenced to seven years in prison.
Citing a Friday release from the Delaware Department of Justice, The News Journal reports 37-year-old George Bishop will also spend a year work release or in home confinement, and then 18 months of GPS-monitored probation in connection with the December 2017 assault.
The release says he violated a protective order by contacting the victim after the assault.
He pleaded guilty earlier this year to strangulation, tampering with a witness and third-degree assault.
The report didn’t include comment from Bishop or a lawyer.
