A former Collins resident pleaded guilty to pushing his pregnant wife during a domestic disturbance this summer.
Scott A. Gaborko, 31, now of Lorain, will be sentenced Jan. 10. He pleaded guilty to attempted domestic violence, a fifth-degree felony punishable by six to 12 months behind bars.
As part of a plea deal with defense attorney Tom Freeman, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff agreed to recommend Gaborko be sentenced to no more than 60 days in the Huron County Jail on the work-release program.
"We're willing to drop the no-association (order)," Woodruff told Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway. "(The victim) is OK with it."
Gaborko's wife gave birth to a girl slightly less than a month ago. The victim and her sleeping infant were in the courthouse hallway, waiting for the hearing to be completed.
The Huron County Sheriff's Office responded to June 29 domestic disturbance at 4797 West Collins Road, Collins. Woodruff said Gaborko and his wife had been arguing because Gaborko didn't want his wife to visit a relative she wanted to see.
"Some pushing ensued. She fell down," Woodruff said.
Deputies saw abrasions on the victim's leg.
Gaborko later posted a $10,000 bond.
