WEBSTER COUNTY, Iowa  —  According to the Webster County Attorney’s Office, a Mason City man has been sentenced in an assault that took place in December.

Officials say 42-year-old Jamin Jerel Pierce pled guilty to willful injury causing bodily injury on January 17, 2017. He admitted to assaulting a woman he was dating by “pushing her to the ground and punching and kicking her,” as the release states.

Webster County Attorney Jennifer Benson said Pierce has a lengthy history of violence, but Pierce claimed the injuries in this case were accidental and requested he be sentenced to a halfway house instead of prison.

A judge sentenced Pierce to a maximum term of five years in prison at the Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Oakdale.
