A Clinton man received a suspended jail sentence for assaulting his girlfriend’s daughter in an attempt of removing her from his residence.

Dominique A. Wilson, 31, 2604 N. Fourth St., apartment 105, pleaded guilty to an amended charge of assault and was ordered to serve 14 days in the Clinton County Jail, with 14 days suspended, and fined $65. He originally was charged with assault causing injury. He must complete 12 months of probation and have no contact with the victim for 12 months.

According to court documents, the victim’s grandmother called Clinton police at 1:54 p.m. Nov. 29, 2013, from her residence in Chicago and reported that her granddaughter had been visiting her biological mother in Clinton. The caller continued that her granddaughter had called her and said she had been assaulted and “thrown out of the house,” by her mother’s boyfriend, Wilson, according to the affidavit.

Court documents continue that the victim stated she was arguing with her siblings and woke Wilson from his sleep, causing an argument between the two of them. Wilson made two attempts to physically remove her from the residence.

At first, he attempted to pick up the chair she was sitting on, according to the affidavit. His second attempt involved grabbing her arm and pulling her off the couch, causing her to fall to the floor. According to court documents, Wilson drug the victim out of the apartment door by her ankles and locked her outside for more than an hour.
