Man Who Punched Girlfriend Gets Probation Before Judgment

April 22, 1997

A Finksburg man stabbed by his girlfriend after punching her during a fight last fall was given probation before judgment yesterday on a charge of second-degree assault. He was given permission to leave the state and ordered to have no unlawful contact with the woman.

Theron Morgan, 35, of the 2600 block of Old Westminster Pike, pleaded not guilty, but did not contest the statement of facts in Carroll County Circuit Court yesterday.

Morgan got the worst of the domestic altercation, prosecutor David P. Daggett told the court.

The woman was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where she was treated Oct. 19 for facial injuries and released the next day.

Morgan was treated at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore for a stab wound to the abdomen.

The woman was not charged.
