Clarence Dunbar, 45, pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court to felony family violence battery and cruelty to children. Judge Sheryl B. Jolly sentenced Dunbar to serve three years in prison followed by three years probation.

In the latest case, Dunbar and Ericka Williams got into an argument Jan. 8 and Dunbar punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground, Assistant District Attorney Natalie Paine said. Williams’ 10-year-old daughter told officers while Dunbar had her mother by the neck she hit him with a broom to try to make him stop. When Dunbar turned on the child, Williams grabbed a knife and stabbed him, Paine said.

Dunbar was previously convicted of domestic violence charges for assaulting Williams in November 2011 and June 2012.

what kind of woman would stay

what kind of woman would stay with a piece of trash like this???? especially since this woman has a little girl..i guess "sorry" ms. williams is so disperate to have a man she will take "any ole thing" just to say "hey y'all I's gots me a man"..hey ms. williams why don't you have a little self respect, pride, and care for your daughter by either being by yourself or finding a decent man...well on second thought you will probably be writing him while he is in prison and get back with him when he gets out...and he will probably molest your daughter when she gets older.......
