Stamford – Guilty Plea In Assault Case
A man pleaded guilty to multiple charges in a Stamford court earlier this week.
In March 2017, 34-year-old Clifton Cole assaulted his then girlfriend in front of their 4-year-old daughter. The victim sustained serious knife injuries in her torso. Cole was subsequently arrested and has been in custody since the attack. At the defendant’s hearing earlier this week, he pleaded guilty to charges of carrying a deadly weapon, risk of injury to a child, and first-degree assault. Under the plea bargain that all parties agreed to, Cole will be imprisoned for at least 10 years, followed by no less than six years of probation. His sentencing is scheduled for April 24.
Regardless of plea bargains and other circumstances, authorities are always focused on administering the appropriate punishment in all cases. This is noteworthy because victims of these reckless individuals should be given ample opportunities to find closure. Of course, there are other avenues to consider, and legal experts can help victims pursue appropriate courses of action.
