An Augusta man who repeatedly punched his pregnant sister and fought off attempts by three other women to stop him pleaded guilty Thursday.

Chauncy P. Johnson, 19, was sentenced to one year in prison followed by four years’ probation for terroristic threats and family violence battery. Attending a family violence prevention program is a condition of probation. Johnson pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court.

Assistant District Attorney Titus Nichols told the judge Johnson got into an argument Oct. 19 with his sister, who was seven months pregnant, and punched her numerous times in the face and body. Three other women were injured when they tried to intervene.

Do we really want this sick

Do we really want this sick puppy roaming the streets in a year with his added prison education. There mental facilities to treat this use them before release.

BTW: It is a little late for a family violence prevention program

I think ..

they need to replace the word 'man' in this article with ... well, I'm sure we can all come up with something a little more suitable (although maybe not fit for print).

He should have asked for Judge Overstreet....

..... That way he might have qualified for a compassionate parole so he could be available to take care of his injured sister.

Too bad there was not a guy

Too bad there was not a guy nearby, to "handle" this stupid teenager. I can't believe that three women could not have beat him senseless with their shoe -- that's how they try to do it on Jerry Springer...!
