A Texas man accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend to the point she lost their unborn child will not serve any jail time.
Johnny Charles Ebbs V physically assaulted his then pregnant girlfriend, LaShonda Lemons, while in a heated argument back in 2019.
He allegedly punched her in the stomach and yelled “F— you and this baby! You aren’t going anywhere!”
Lemons went to an area hospital three days after the altercation, where she was told that she had placenta abruption and had lost the baby.
Ebbs was arrested and initially charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, assault impeding breath/circulation and continuous violence against family.
After further investigating attorneys stated “Additional evidence gathered through the course of the investigation made clear that the facts do not support the initial allegation.”
On October 17 a plea deal was reached and Ebbs received eight years of deferred adjudication.
