An Oregon man has been sentenced to twenty years in Idaho prison for attempted strangulation and domestic violence.
Chad R. Broadie was arrested in November 2015 after officers were dispatched to a disturbance in Nampa.
A female caller was heard screaming “help me” and “he broke my ribs earlier” before dispatch heard the phone disconnect.
Officers arrived on scene and spoke to a woman who informed them that Broadie had battered her and attempted to strangle her over several days.
She later told officers that Broadie had beaten her with a wooden paddle, kicked her in the stomach and punched her in the face while children were present at the home.
The sentencing marks Broadie’s fourth and fifth felony conviction. Broadie was convicted of a similar assault in 2010 on the same victim.
“This was a horrific case of domestic violence and we’re lucky that law enforcement was able to intervene when they did or it could have had a much different or even tragic ending,” said Prosecutor Bryan Taylor. “My Office has a responsibility to stand up for the victims and survivors of domestic violence, and we’ll continue to fight for them each and every day.”
