CLEARFIELD – A Clearfield man was sentenced to state prison Tuesday for keeping a woman at her residence and beating her in September.
Police say Cameron Scott Wisor, 26, did not allow the victim to leave her home for four days, as he beat and threatened to kill her.
Wisor pleaded guilty to felony strangulation as well as misdemeanor unlawful restraint and terroristic threats during colloquy court on Tuesday.
President Fredric J. Ammerman sentenced him to serve 12 months to six years in state prison with three years concurrent probation.
He was also ordered to pay over $9,500 in restitution.
The victim addressed the court questioning why the minimum sentence in the plea agreement was so low.
Ammerman explained prior records and sentencing guidelines together factor in to determine a minimum sentence. This case falls into the standard range.
After this, she said she was okay with the plea.
“What you went through should not be tolerated,” Ammerman commented.
Wisor apologized for what he did, prior to sentencing.
According to the affidavit, the victim reported to Lawrence Township police that Wisor, who was living with her but planning to move out, had surprised her after she got home from a funeral.
“He proceeded to repeatedly punch, kick, threaten and throw her to the ground,” the arresting officer wrote in the criminal complaint.
As she spoke, she had a bloodshot right eye and bruises in various stages of healing on both her arms.
She told the officers that one of the ways he described he would kill her was by stomping on her head.
At several points, he strangled her, making her feel like she was going to pass out, she told investigators.
She was able to go to work on the third day, but afterwards she picked Wisor up at his job and took him back to her house.
She explained to police that she did this because she “wasn’t thinking straight” and believed if she didn’t, he would burn down her house.
Once back at her home, he began screaming and beating her again. Eventually she fled and called police while he was in the shower.
