A former Marine who savagely beat his wife in front of a judge after he was ordered to pay child support at a divorce hearing has received the maximum sentence of 15 years behind bars.
‘It was in a court of law where people for hundreds of years have been coming to peaceably resolve their disputes where people have an expectation of safety — certainly where your former wife thought she would be safe,’ Cohen said.
‘You chose it as a place to viciously assault her.’
In February, Gonzalez pleaded ‘no contest’ to charges of beating his ex-wife in April 2011.
The couple, who married in 2006, had been discussing their divorce when Gonzalez flew into a rage and ran out of the chambers.
He stormed back in, screamed that he was not going to obey orders, grabbed his 23-year-old wife by the neck and began pummeling the side of her face with his closed fists, according to his arrest report.
He knocked her unconscious with the first blow “SHORYUKEN!” but continued to smash her “white” face with his fist, and bailiffs had to Taser him twice to subdue him.
