MEDFORD, Ore. — A Medford woman has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined almost $38,000 for partially blinding a Grants Pass man with a shattered beer bottle.

Jackson County prosecutors said that 23-year-old Megan Terese Whitehead broke the beer bottle over 21-year-old Anthony Thayer’s head.

Then she stabbed him in the face while Thayer tried to break up a fight between Whitehead’s boyfriend and two other men in January.

Thayer’s mother told a judge during sentencing that her son is blind in one eye and has endured six surgeries, with another one scheduled in just weeks.
