Man who battered zip-tied woman up for parole
February 18, 2019
A Gardnerville man, who was convicted last year by a jury of battery causing substantial bodily harm, is scheduled to go before the Nevada Parole Board on March 25.
Donald Douglas Eby, 61, was found guilty by a jury in April 2018 after a four-day trial. The jury found him innocent of coercion.
The 90-pound woman was found running along Centerville Lane on Jan. 2, 2017, battered and wearing only a bathrobe and underwear, her wrists zip-tied so tightly her rescuers could barely see the plastic.
Eby was sentenced to 1-4 years in prison on June 6, 2018, after the victim and her sisters testified.
The victim testified Eby pulled the zip ties out of his pocket, and that she believed he had no intention of letting her leave that night.
Under Nevada law, the longest sentence Eby could have received was 1-5 years.
