Comments Off on Man who beat woman with hammer gets more jail time after testing positive for Meth

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Casper man who was convicted of beating a woman with a hammer in 2009 has been sentenced to another three months in jail after testing positive for methamphetamine.

The Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/QkqqbG ) reports prosecutors petitioned to revoke Peter Potter‘s probation after he tested positive for the drug in late August. District Judge Catherine Wilking agreed Monday to go along with a joint recommendation by the prosecution and defense that called for a two- to two-and-a-half-year sentence, all suspended except 90 days in jail.

Johnson was originally sentenced for aggravated assault for beating a woman repeatedly with a hammer and kicking her with steel-toed boots.
