Oregon man sentenced to eight years for domestic violence

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon man with a criminal record of violence against women has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison.

The Statesman Journal reports 37-year-old Joshua Haney was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to attempted second-degree assault, domestic violence assault and two counts of coercion.

The Salem man was initially arrested in August on charges of assault, rape and attempted murder against a Marion County woman.

Court records show his criminal history dates back to 2003, when he was convicted on an assault charge.

He was convicted on another assault charge the next year and sentenced to 13 months in prison.

The victim later filed for a restraining order after Haney was convicted of breaking into her home.
