Man sentenced in coffee assault
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia man has been sentenced to 11 1/2 to 23 months in prison for throwing scalding coffee on a doughnut shop worker, causing second-degree burns and permanent scarring to her arms.
David Timbers, 54, apologized to the victim Monday before being sentenced for the May 2012 attack that stemmed from a dispute over his bill.
Timbers will be released during daytime to work to pay $1,100 restitution to cashier Sokchea Luy, a Cambodian immigrant who told the court that her scars bring shame to her family. The judge also ordered him to undergo anger-management counseling.
