Pennsylvania man to take anger management classes after assaulting girlfriends
A Plum, Pennsylvania, man was sentenced on Wednesday, July 17 after pleading guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend in April and current girlfriend in May. His punishment will include, among other things, court ordered anger management counseling.
The first incident occurred on April 9, when 23-year-old Dwayne Cass Jr. went to confront his ex-girlfriend, Amber Lewis, while she was working at a convenience store at a Route 380 Fueland BP gas station. Local publication The Tribune-Review reports that, when Cass appeared at the station, Lewis locked the doors and immediately called 911. Cass drove his car into the convenience store doors, smashing them open. According to authorities, Cass proceeded to exit his vehicle and punch Lewis in the face, slamming her head into the floor. While police arrested him on charges of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, Cass posted the $5,000 bail.
A month later, on May 8, Cass threatened and punched his new girlfriend after discovering an unidentified man had called her phone. When Cass was arrested again, his bond was revoked and he was sent to Westmoreland County Prison.
After submitting his guilty plea to the assault charges on July 17, Cass was simultaneously sentenced to a prison term ranging from 57 days to 23 months and two years of probation. While he was immediately paroled, part of the sentencing mandates anger management classes.
