SALEM, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon man with a criminal record of violence against women has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison.
The Statesman Journal reports 37-year-old Joshua Haney was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to attempted second-degree assault, domestic violence assault and two counts of coercion.
The Salem man was initially arrested in August on charges of assault, rape and attempted murder against a Marion County woman.
Court records show his criminal history dates back to 2003, when he was convicted on an assault charge.
