CORBETT, Ore. (KOIN) — A man who brutally beat his 71-year-old mother has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison.

Sean Tester pleaded guilty to one count of assault in the first degree constituting domestic violence, and one count of coercion constituting domestic violence, according the the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office. He also stipulated that by committing these crimes, he violated his probation for previous arson and coercion convictions.

The crime happened February 21, 2019 in Corbett. Deputies were called out on reports of a home invasion burglary, and found the victim on the floor in a large pool of blood. Tester told them he had come home from a nearby tavern and found his mother badly hurt, but according to the DA’s office, investigators did not see any signs of forced entry. Tester later admitted to the assault.

“This attack was deliberate, cruel and selfish,” Multnomah County Senior Deputy District Attorney Traci Anderson said in a release. “It lasted for up to an hour. The severity of the attack was particularly shocking. Mr. Tester’s mother suffered life-altering injuries that included broken ribs, a fractured eye socket, numerous facial injuries, and extensive bruising across her body.”

Tester was sentenced to a total of 130 months.
