An Augusta woman who cut her roommate with a box cutter when he failed to bring home beer pleaded guilty to aggravated assault Wednesday.

Lashaun D. Tillman, 49, waived her right to a trial in Richmond County Superior Court and pleaded guilty in exchange for a five-year probated sentence under the First Offender Act. Counseling for alcohol abuse is a condition of the sentence.

On Aug. 30, Tillman cut her roommate’s neck with a box cutter. Assistant District Attorney Amanda Heath told the judge the victim did not wish to prosecute.

the sentence has made her go on the wagon permanently. I also guarantee that she is a good Tea Party member and dissavows the democratic party and it's public dole system. I guarantee she has her Phd. in physics. I guarantee she despises obama. I guarantee Iran is our best friend.

I think she should have to

I think she should have to SOME time. After all, cutting on someone with a box cutter is not exactly non-violent.
