A Nebraska man avoided jail time despite charges he lit his wife’s leg on fire and stabbed in a brutal domestic assault.
Giannini Cervantes, 39, of Grand Island, was sentenced this month to 42 months probation after pleading no contest to second-degree domestic assault, a felony, the Grand Island Independent reported.
Cervantes had been arrested in May after his wife told police that Cervantes had poured alcohol on her leg, then ignited it. He later stabbed his wife in the leg, according to cops.
She also claimed Cervantes beat her, punching her in the face and leaving her with broken ribs.
After his no contest plea in September, a weapons charge and two third-degree domestic assault charges were dropped.
