But no worries, after being convicted of second degree assault for punching her in the face and shoving her to the ground; Judge Halee Weinstein gave him a huge break. Incidentally, Judge Weinstein is the same judge that once questioned whether The Baltimore Spectator's A.F. James MacArthur was a real journalist or not.
