A former North Berwick man was sentenced Wednesday in York County Superior Court in Alfred to serve nine years in prison for assaulting his girlfriend in 2014.

Lee Perry, 47, was convicted of seven domestic violence-related charges after a four-day jury trial in May. The charges include three counts of aggravated assault, a Class B felony, for beating the woman, choking her, breaking her wrist and cutting her with a knife, according to the York County District Attorney’s Office.

Justice Wayne Douglas sentenced Perry to a total of 14 years, with nine years to serve and five years to remain suspended while he serves a four-year probation term after his release.

In addition to the aggravated assault counts, Perry was convicted by the jury of one count of domestic violence criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, one count of domestic violence assault, one count of domestic violence with a dangerous weapon and one count of domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.
