PHOENIX (AP) _ A judge has sentenced an Arizona woman to 3 1/2 years in prison for running over her husband with an SUV because he didn’t vote in the 2012 presidential election.
Thirty-one-year-old Holly Nicole Solomon of Mesa pleaded guilty to assault charges stemming from injuries her husband suffered days after President Barack Obama was re-elected. She was sentenced on Thursday.
Authorities say Solomon was upset about Obama’s re-election and began arguing with her husband when she found out he didn’t vote.
Her husband told investigators Solomon believed her family would face hardship as a result of Obama’s re-election.
Police say Solomon chased her husband through a parking lot, circled him as he hid behind a light pole, struck him and pinned him under the vehicle as he tried to flee.
