Punishment For Assault Handed Down

A Wichita Falls man will spend 45 years in Prison for assaulting his girlfriend.

Anthony Bernard Wingfield was found guilty of Assault Family Violence With a Prior Conviction.  The 49-year-old was sentenced in 46th Judicial District Court Wednesday night.

Authorities said Wingfield's girlfriend approached a Vernon police corporal at a Taylor's Truck stop back in June 2013.  Her eye was extremely swollen and she told the officer that Windfield had assaulted her.  He claimed that he acted in self defense.

Wingfield was previously convicted of Misdemeanor Assault Family Violence in Dallas County in 2012 with the same victim.  This enhanced the charge to the third degree felony level.  Wingfield also had six prior felony convictions and six misdemeanor convictions in Wichita County and that increased the punishment range.
