MONTEREY COUNTY — 36-year-old Brandon Rashad Beaver of Sacramento has been sentenced to four years and four months in prison for the brutal assault of his pregnant girlfriend.
Police say that earlier this year, on January 8th, the victim turned up at Marina PD with “two black eyes, visible facial bruising, and blood on her eyeball.”
She recounted that Beaver, suspicious that she was cheating on him, grabbed her by the neck, threw her onto the bed, and struck her in the face around ten times until her nose bled.
He then retrieved a semiautomatic handgun, aimed it at her face, and ordered her to admit it “or else.” He reportedly then threatened to strike her with the gun, and did strike her several more times “with a closed fist.”
Upon his arrest, Beaver was found to be in possession of a meth pipe. A box of ammo was also found in his room.
Given his multiple prior felony convictions, including a felony domestic violence charge out of Sacramento in 2013, he is legally prohibited from owning or possessing firearms or ammunition.
The Monterey County District Attorney reports in a press release that Beaver plead guilty to one count of “inflicting corporal injury on a cohabitant, with an enhancement that he had previously been convicted of a domestic violence offense, and one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm.”
