Defendant sentenced in DV assault against new mom

A 23-year-old male recently confessed to punching the mother of his newborn baby at a Philadelphia medical facility. The January 2012 domestic assault incident occurred as they reportedly argued over naming their infant while his girlfriend was in the maternity ward; the suspect pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for the occurrence. According to court documents, law enforcement personnel investigated the defendant after a domestic disturbance call from the hospital. The new mother claimed that the couple was arguing over the infant's name. The defendant kicked a table toward her. As he held the baby, he pushed the mother, and she fell. He placed the infant in a crib but continued to call the mother names, and he struck the mother in the face twice.
