NW Pa. woman gets prison for biting off mate's ear
Submitted By AP Wire Service
SMETHPORT, Pa. (AP), Aug 27 - A northwestern Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to state prison for biting off her boyfriend's ear during a domestic dispute.
A McKean County judge on Thursday sentenced 27-year-old Erin Moore, of Bradford, to 191/2 to 51 months in state prison for the incident earlier this year. She was given credit for 88 days she's already served in the county jail and will be eligible to serve her sentence at a boot camp.
District Attorney Ray Learn says the stiff sentence was prompted by Moore's history, which includes an incident in which she attacked a former boyfriend with a baseball bat.
Learn also says a child was present when she bit off her boyfriend's ear.
