Man Sentenced For Beating Girlfriend

A Dubuque man is going to prison for the next decade for beating his girlfriend so severely that she had to be hospitalized. Court documents from Dubuque County say 30 year old Pierre Springer recently pled guilty to willful-injury causing serious injury and was sentenced to ten years in prison. In exchange for his guilty plea, the county attorney’s office dismissed a charge of first degree robbery. Police records say officers responded to an apartment in the 400 block of Locust Street on February 21st to investigate a report of an assault, When police arrived they found Springer’s girlfriend who had “significant” facial injuries, which included a broken nose and cuts to her face. The woman was admitted to the intensive care unit at an area hospital. Springer fled the area before officers arrived, but was arrested and charged a few days later.
