He pulled a knife on his neighbor during the fight too.
According to the Express Times, this dude flipped his isht and only got probation:
Kyle James Milliard, 22, was sentenced to 18 months of probation for the April 25 assault, in which he punched and shoved Kayla Rainer while she held their 1-year-old baby.
Lehigh County Judge Robert Steinberg said Milliard’s lack of a criminal record was a factor in his decision not to impose prison, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Jay Jenkins.
Steinberg also considered the defendant’s family support system and steady employment, Jenkins said. Milliard works at the Hop’s at The Paddock restaurant in South Whitehall Township.
Milliard could have faced as much as four years in prison for the assault, which occurred at an apartment Milliard and Rainer shared in the 2300 block of Old Post Road.
Last month, Milliard admitted he punched Rainer in the arm, slapped her in the mouth and twice shoved her into a wall. Rainer left the apartment after the fight and sought help from neighbor Lewis Gregg, police said.
After Gregg went to Milliard’s apartment to confront him, Milliard opened the door holding a knife with a 6-inch blade and lunged at Gregg, leading to a brief scuffle.
Gregg was not injured, and Rainer suffered a swollen lip and cut nose, authorities said. The baby’s head hit the wall when Milliard pushed Rainer but was not seriously injured.
Mark Merdinger, Milliard’s public defender, previously argued his client brandished the knife in self-defense and dropped it early in the fight.
Merdinger declined to comment about today’s sentencing.
Milliard said last month he is no longer in a relationship with Rainer.
Other charges against Milliard were dropped last month in exchange for the guilty plea, including a more serious felony count of aggravated assault.
Does this sound shady to you??
