DANBURY, Conn. – A Danbury judge will make the final decision in an armed assault case sometime in July after the trial ended on Friday, according to the News-Times.
The defendant, Kerlyn Taveras, is accused of multiple charges, including aggravated sexual assault, home invasion and strangulation against an ex-girlfriend, the News-Times said.
Taveras was under several protective orders restricting him from contact with the woman before he allegedly committed the assault in May 2014, reported the News-Times.
He refused a plea deal and instead decided to go to trial, and he faces up to 100 years in prison, the News-Times noted.Read the News-Times article here.
