Man Gets Probation For Slamming Woman

A Georgia man charged with assaulting a woman inside a Dubuque hotel room last summer has been sentenced to probation. 46 year old James Donehoo pleaded guilty to domestic abuse assault causing injury. As part of the plea deal, the county attorney agreed to drop a charge of assault causing serious injury. In July Dubuque police responded to an assault at the Best Western Plus Dubuque Hotel and Conference Center on Dodge Street. When officers arrived a woman was being placed in an ambulance and taken to Mercy to be treated for broken bones in her foot. The woman told investigators that Donehoo slammed her head into the bathroom wall in their hotel room and as she fell her foot struck a granite corner breaking three bones in her foot. Donehoo was sentenced to two days in jail and two years of probation.
