A Wheeling man accused of repeatedly beating a woman in the head received the maximum sentence possible on Thursday.
Hayward Bazar will spend one year in a state correctional facility after he was found guilty of battery. A jury had a twenty-minute deliberation to reach their decision.
Bazar's defense had requested a suspended sentence, however, that was denied by Judge James Mazzone who cited Bazar's lengthy criminal record.
