Sentencing Submissions Heard For Great Grandfather In Windsor

The crown and defence are far apart when it comes to the sentence for a Windsor great grandfather found guilty of assaulting two women.

After a trial earlier this year, Kenneth Sparks, 61, was found guilty of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon after he stabbed a woman and hit another woman on the head with a pipe while they were drinking at an apartment on Ottawa St. in March 2015.

Sparks denied hurting the women and claims he was trying to break up a fight.

The woman who was stabbed fled the apartment and ended up in a bathtub bleeding.

Both sides entered their sentencing submissions on Thursday.

The crown is seeking a prison term of five years while the defence entered a range of nine months to two years less a day minus credit for time served under strict bail conditions.

Justice Thomas Carey will sentence Sparks at a future date
