Joshua Nasca -- the Mentor man is accused of partly severing his girlfriend's ear after he flung a beer bottle at her -- pleaded guilty to a charge of assault last week in Mentor Municipal Court.
Nasca, 25, originally faced a charge of felonious assault. However, he was allowed to plead to a lesser count of misdemeanor assault last Monday instead.
Acting Judge Paul Miller sentenced Nasca to 180 days in jail -- the longest sentence he could have given him for that charge -- according to online court documents.
Once Nasca gets out of jail, he will also be on probation for a year.
Nasca had gone out with his girlfriend that evening. However, when they returned home, he wanted to go back out.
The two argued about it and Nasca flung a bottle at her, Mentor Police Lt. Ken Zbiegien said at the time of Nasca's arrest.
The bottle hit the 23-year-old woman and the bottom of her ear was pulled away from her cheek, Zbiegien said.
The woman will need surgery to repair the injury, the lieutenant added.
