A 49-year-old Orangeburg man was sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to assaulting both of his girlfriends.
Christopher Alex Addison, of 990 Glover Street, pleaded guilty last month to one count each of second-degree assault and battery and second-degree domestic violence.
Circuit Judge Bentley Price sentenced him to two years in prison. He gave Addison credit for having already served 157 days at the Orangeburg County Detention Center.
A grand jury indicted Addison on the charges of first-degree assault and battery and second-degree assault and battery.
As part of his plea agreement, prosecutors dismissed the charge of kidnapping.
Addison choked his girlfriend on Feb. 12 after reviewing her phone, according to an Orangeburg Department of Public Safety incident report.
He also assaulted a St. Matthews woman when he heard her talking on the phone on July 19.
The woman, who was his new girlfriend, told authorities she was speaking with her brother but Addison believed she may have been speaking with someone else.
