Westminster man gets 18 months for assault

November 20, 1997

A Westminster man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in the Carroll County Detention Center for assaulting a woman with a knife and hammer in January.

Wayne Owens-Bey, 24, pleaded not guilty in September, but agreed not to contest the prosecutor's version of what happened at 99 Charles St. in Westminster.

Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold found Owens-Bey guilty and, according to the plea agreement, suspended all but 18 months of a five-year term with credit allowed for 33 days served.

When released, Owens-Bey will be placed on four years' probation and may have no contact with the victim, a Westminster woman.

Arnold also imposed a 30-day suspended sentence on Owens-Bey for an unrelated charge of battery, which occurred in September 1996 in Westminster.
