DIXON – A 28-year-old Dixon man was sentenced to 4 years in prison and 4 additional years of supervised release for aggravated domestic battery.

Another count of aggravated domestic battery, and misdemeanor charges of domestic battery and interfering with the reporting of domestic violence were dropped against Moses D. Spears III.

In March 2012, Spears shoved a woman, hit her in the face, and choked her until she started to black out before he took her cellphone when she tried to dial 911. He pleaded guilty Friday.
