A SD Man Pleads Guilty to 8 Counts of Domestic Assault (we call it “Mayhem” in FL) after he Beats, Strangles and then literally Cuts Off his Pregnant Girlfriend’s Nipples with Scissors during a Horrific… Scroll down to read more!

Meet 45 y/o Tony Deval Ledbetter of South Dakota.  That’s him below…

Tony is in stripes / custody after having been arrested on October 11, 2016 for, and on Friday, August 18th, 2017 pleading guilty to, 8 counts of domestic assault on a pregnant victim after he beat, strangled and then cut off his girlfriend’s nipples with a pair of scissors.

According to police, back in October, 2016 Tony and his girlfriend were having a dispute about the current state of their relationship during which Tony reportedly “punched and slammed” the woman’s head to the ground.  In an attempt to stop her from screaming and alarming neighbors he then started to strangle / cut off her airway with his forearm.

When that was unsuccessful Tony reportedly took a blanket, stuffed it in the her mouth, sat on top of her and, for reasons unknown to anyone but Tony the Psycho, he then proceeded to use a scissors to cut off the woman’s nipples.

The newly nipple-less pregnant victim somehow managed to escape the scene, and both she and the baby are reportedly healthy.

Not withstanding his guilty plea Tony reportedly told the court that the violent act was one of “self-defense” amidst what he allegedly described as having been a two-sided fight.  

For his psychotic criminal behavior Tony faces 120 years in state prison (15 years for each of the 8 counts), although, in exchange for his plea agreement the State has reportedly agreed to seek no more than a 30 year sentence (in this case apparently a sweetheart deal).

A friend of the unnamed victim created a GoFundMe page entitled “Woman Mutilated with Scissors” (which you can access by clicking here) to both help spread the word on domestic abuse as well as provide financial aid to her friend for nipple reconstruction surgery.

The GoFundMe page says “Due to the serious nature of this violence and pending legal action the victim’s name will remain anonymous.  Please help financially support the woman who suffered this traumatic domestic violence.  Here is the story.  She is my best friend and my mentor, a hard-working employee, and single parent. She is pregnant with her abuser’s child.  Funds are needed for her reconstructive surgery, medical bills, home/utilities, and child care. Thank you for your generous support!”  As of the time of this blog post $10,220 of its goal of $250,000 has been raised.

Memo to the Folks:  Domestic Violence (man on woman, woman on man, woman on woman, man on man, etc and regardless) is never acceptable.  If you don’t believe me then please listen to Captain Picard…

Memo to Tony Deval Ledbetter:  You sick twisted f*ck…

Memo to Tony Deval Ledbetter continued:  Meet you new Cellie…
