On Tuesday, December 5, District Court Judge Norman E. Young of the Ninth Judicial District sentenced Brian Glover to pay over $100,000 in restitution to Deena Longoria.
On October 5, Glover was found guilty of battery, a misdemeanor, stemming from an incident between Mr. Glover and Ms. Longoria that occurred on April 9, 2006. The Sublette County Attorney’s Office unsuccessfully sought a felony assault conviction in the October trial.
Longoria sustained serious injuries to her face in the events that she claims to have no memory of. According to Sexual Assault Family Violence (SAFV) Task Force Director Robin Clover, who testified the victim’s medical expenses incurred as a result of Mr. Glover’s actions, Ms. Longoria faces bills totaling $101,213.71.
Included in that amount is another reconstructive facial surgery that Ms. Longoria has not yet undergone. That surgery is expected to cost around $8,000. According to Ms. Clover, Ms. Longoria was not insured at the time of the injuries.
Judge Young ordered Mr. Glover to pay full restitution to Longoria in the amount stated by Ms. Clover. The maximum jail term for a misdemeanor battery conviction is 180 days.
On the day of the sentencing, Mr. Glover had been held in the Sublette County Jail for 240 days. With credit for days served against the maximum 180-day jail sentence handed down by Judge Young, Mr. Glover has already fulfilled that part of his sentence.
Following sentencing on the battery conviction, Judge Young rendered his decision in a probation revocation petition filed by the County Attorney’s Office. That filing was not related to the incident involving Ms. Longoria.
According to affidavits filed by the Sheriff’s Office, Mr. Glover was found to have violated the terms of his probation from prior offences by driving without a valid license, driving with excessive speed, testing positive for THC (marijuana) and consuming alcohol.
As a result, Judge Young sentenced Mr. Glover to 1.5 to 3 years in the Wyoming State Penitentiary in Rawlins.
Judge Young “pretty much gave (Glover) the harshest sentence possible,” Deputy County Attorney Mike Crosson said.
