Woman Sentenced For August 2012 Cutting In Century

April 30, 2013

A Flomaton woman has been sentenced in connection with a cutting that occurred in Century in late August 2012.

Chelesa Dianne Boutwell, now 20, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon following the early morning incident in the area of Pond and Ramar streets.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to Jay Hospital after receiving a report of a cutting victim. They discovered 21-year old Hannah Joyce Campbell of Century had 8-10 cuts to her face and hand from an unknown sharp object, according to an arrest report. Campbell was transferred to a Pensacola hospital for further treatment for her injuries.

Boutwell told deputies that she had been having problems with Campbell for about a week. The pair became involved in a physical altercation, and Boutwell admitted to hitting Campbell several times. Boutwell said when she noticed that Campell was bleeding, she stopped and helped her up off the ground, the arrest report stated.  Boutwell told deputies she did not know how Campbell was cut, but believed the injuries may have been caused by a ring on her finger.

Boutwell  pleaded not contest to the charges against her. Judge Ross Goodman withheld adjudication and sentenced Boutwell to a suspended 36 months in state prison and placed her on probation for 36 months.

She was also ordered to stay away from Campbell, pay a restitution amount to be determined and attend anger management counseling.

    To bad you she didn’t get what she deserved! A ring are you kidding me it was more like a blade. The victim had to have plastic surgery and is scarred for the rest of her life. But the surgeon was so good shes still as beautiful as ever! This girl will violate and when she goes to prison which is what she should have got her best friend want be there to hand her a blade. This punishment does not fit the crime! Sad when you can almost kill someone and not spend a night in jail!!!
