Two days after the birth of their child should have been a happy time for Richard L. Davis Jr. and his girlfriend.
Instead, Davis and the unidentified woman disagreed about what to name the baby. Davis got upset and assaulted the woman while she was still at Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood with their newborn.
On Wednesday, Davis, 23, of Philadelphia, pleaded guilty to simple assault. Montgomery County Judge Joseph A. Smyth sentenced him to eight-to-23 months in prison and ordered him to undergo domestic violence counseling.
