A Hudson Valley man who violently beat a woman during a home burglary was sentenced.

On Wednesday in Sullivan County Court, 46-year-old Jason Carnell of Monticello was sentenced to eight years in prison after he was found guilty of first-degree burglary.

The woman suffered multiple injuries, including a cut to her head that required suturing by several staples as well as a broken nose. In court, Carnell admitted he wasn’t provoked when he assaulted the woman.

Carnell was apprehended by Monticello Police as he fled on foot. He was sentenced as a second felony offender for having prior felony convictions, including a 2014 conviction for felony criminal mischief.
