WILTON, Maine (WABI) - A man from Phillips will spend a year in prison for attacking and choking a woman he lived with.
43-year-old Joel Thompson was sentenced last month.
He pleaded guilty last fall to aggravated assault and domestic violence assault.
In exchange, a more serious charge of gross sexual assault was dropped.
Thompson was arrested in February of last year at a residence he and the woman shared in Wilton.
He was out on bail for another crime at the time of the attack.
