ST. PAUL, Minn. - A St. Paul man was sentenced on Thursday to 93 months in prison in connection to a 3-day long beating and confinement of his live-in girlfriend in January, according to the Ramsey County District Attorney's Office.
Officials said Brandon Joshua Fourre reached a plea agreement in which he will face 57 months for one count of kidnapping and 36 months for one count of assault in the second degree.
Fourre, 22, will register as a sex offender for 10 years, and be subject to conditional release at the end of his 8-year sentence, officials said.
"This individual treated his victim with unusual cruelty," said Ramsey County Attorney John Choi. "We are pleased with the judge's sentence in this case."
St. Paul police were called to the Woodwinds Hospital in Woodbury to take an assault report from a woman. The victim told police that her live-in boyfriend, Fourre, accused her of being unfaithful and then repeatedly beat, verbally maligned and detained her at her home on the 900 block of Conway Drive in St. Paul, according to a criminal complaint.
The ordeal lasted from Jan. 28 to Jan. 31, according to court documents.
