A 21-year-old man received a deferred sentence Monday for attacking his pregnant girlfriend and shooting at her as she fled.

Corey Gene Brewington was given a five-year deferred sentence for felony assault with a weapon for the incident at a residence in Molt last June 23.

Judge G. Todd Baugh also ordered Brewington to pay a $1,000 fine. The judge ordered a concurrent jail term and fine for misdemeanor partner or family member assault.

Baugh rejected a request from a prosecutor for a five-year suspended sentence.

Brewington and the victim are now married, and the woman previously testified that he is taking medications and receiving counseling for a mental illness.

Brewington was arrested at about 2:45 a.m. when deputies were called to a residence on Ballard Ivie Road. The victim had called for help from a neighbor's house.

The pregnant woman said Brewington, her boyfriend at the time, had kicked and stomped her in the stomach and punched her in the face.

The woman fled the house and Brewington followed with a pistol, firing twice as she ran for cover.

Brewington had a blood-alcohol level of 0.103 percent at the time of his arrest.
