 By Aaron Humes: 18 year old construction worker Ezmir Garrido can consider himself lucky to avoid jail time after pleading guilty to attacking his 72c574cf-fb8c-4a7b-a2b1-6db79cebf276girlfriend, who is also mother of his child.

The West Collet Canal resident during an argument hit the woman in the face, then grabbed a bat and struck her foot several times, resulting in charges of harm.

Garrido pleaded guilty but as he was a first time offender, Magistrate Deborah Rogers elected to fine him $500 to be paid by January 29, 2016, in default six months’ imprisonment.
