Attempted strangulation results in 2-5-year sentence



A man who tried to throttle his pregnant girlfriend was sentenced Monday to up to five years in prison.

Jedidiah Amodeus Haveman, 21, slapped the woman across her face several times, punched her in the leg and grabbed her by the throat after a June 13 argument, according to court documents.

Haveman also has previous convictions of drug paraphernalia and failure to appear in court.

In her statement, the survivor said Haveman has not taken any responsibility for what he has done, nor has he apologized, and she’s scared that he hasn’t learned anything from his actions.

Haveman was sentenced to 2-5 years for battery domestic violence by strangulation and 364 days in Douglas County Jail for battery against a pregnant person. The sentences are to run consecutive, and he was given credit for 104 days credit.
