St. Cloud Man Gets Just Over Two Years for Domestic Assault
ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man will spend two years and five months in prison after being sentenced for a domestic assault over Memorial Day weekend.
Thirty-two-year-old Scott Schaefer-Bonovsky was sentenced by a district court judge on Friday from the incident back in May.
Police were called to the Walmart store in Sauk Centre on Memorial Day for a domestic assault report.
A woman told police an argument with Schaefer-Bonovsky started Friday, May 25th and continued into Saturday morning. When the argument escalated, Schaefer-Bonovsky said he should "rock her" to get the respect he deserved, then punched her on both sides of her head, slapped her across the face and began choking her. When Schaefer-Bonovsky released his grip, the woman said he punched her in the eye.
Records show after the assault Schaefer-Bonovsky was apologetic and said he didn't remember most of the assault.
On Monday, May 28th, the woman woke up to find Schaefer-Bonovsky was mad because he had checked her phone and saw she had cleared her call history. He is accused of choking her again.
Later, the woman was able to convince Schaefer-Bonovsky to go with her to Walmart. While at the store, she went into the bathroom and texted a friend to call the police.
Schaefer-Bonovsky has felony convictions for felony domestic assault and violation of a no-contact order from Benton County in 2012.
He will get credit for 87 days already served.
