(AP) — A 46-year-old man has lost his parole and been given more prison time for using a baseball bat to beat a pregnant woman in Lincoln.
Online court records say George Wortham was sentenced to 10 to 15 years on Monday. He’d pleaded no contest to an assault charge. Police say he beat the woman in April. The woman told officers Wortham hit her about 20 times on her head, back, arms and hands. Wortham was on parole from prison on convictions of terroristic threats, theft, assault, DUI and possession of hydrocodone.
The victim also said a woman with Wortham, Thenesia Bullock, hit and kicked her. The 45-year-old Bullock has pleaded not guilty to an assault charge and awaits trial.
