District Attorney Vern Pierson announces the sentencing of Shannon Kay Angi to five years and four months in state prison following a jury trial in which she was convicted of four counts of felony domestic violence with a prior conviction and two counts of spousal battery.
Deputy District Attorney Miles Perry presented evidence during the trial that Ms. Angi battered her domestic partner over a two week period of time through repeated acts of physical abuse including kicking her in the ribs, slapping her in the face, throwing a patio table at her, throwing a guitar at her, and head-butting her multiple times. The victim was particularly vulnerable as she suffered from numerous medical conditions including neuropathy and diabetes severely limiting her mobility. The jury also learned that after charges were filed by the District Attorney's Office, Ms. Angi attempted to contact the victim in violation of a criminal protective order to dissuade her from testifying in court and also conspired to fabricate an alibi defense with the help of a third party.
The trial was presided over by Judge Thomas Smith,
retired, and the sentence was imposed by Judge Daniel B. Proud, retired. Ms. Angi suffered two prior misdemeanor
domestic violence convictions against the same victim in 2012 and 2014.
