Twenty-four-year-old Mark Currie plead guilty on May 23 to domestic battery charges, the Journal Gazette & Times-Courier reported.

Currie, a Mattoon, Illinois local, hit a woman in April at the Super 8 motel on McFall Road. The charge became a felony because Currie had an outstanding domestic battery conviction in Macon County. He was sentenced to three years of imprisonment due to his criminal record.

Other accusations against Currie that day included bashing a man’s head against the wall at the entrance of the motel and damaging the motel’s computers and shelves. The aggravated battery and property damage charges against him, however, were dismissed in a plea agreement.
