Thug Batter Pregnant Girlfriend On Crutches To The Floor

A thug was filmed viciously battering his pregnant girlfriend on crutches to the floor before repeatedly punching and stomping on her.

Jamar Bernard Woody, 35, was handed an eight-year jail term for the sickening assault in the middle of a convenience store.

CCTV footage shows Woody repeatedly battering his girlfriend - who was three months pregnant at the time - around the head before then launching a volley of blows as she lay on the floor.
He has since pleaded with a judge to reduce his sentence.

He begged the judge not to force him to "watch my sons grow up through pictures", adding: "This is my breaking point, I’m not fit to take this right now," according to The Roanoke Times .

But the judge said the sentence for the horrific attack was not unreasonable and refused to cut his prison term.

Woody was jailed for malicious wounding over the assault in June last year.

There were gasps from the jury at his trial as footage showed him batter the helpless Shatory Irving, who was using a crutch, to the floor before repeatedly punching and stomping on her.

A cashier at the shop in North Carolina rushed to her aid and ordered Woody to leave the premises.

The victim is said to have suffered a cut to her forehead that exposed part of her skull. However she was still the sole character witness at Woody's trial.

Her baby, although born premature, was unharmed by the incident.

“She really is fortunate that she wasn’t hurt more than she actually was,” assistant commonwealth's attorney David Billingsley said.

The victim gave a character reference for Woody at his trial, telling the court she did not want him to go to jail.
