A man who attacked a woman has been sentenced in Sedgwick County District Court.  Judge Joe Kisner sentenced 45-year-old Leonard Charles of Wichita to 638 months in prison, more than 53 years, after a jury found him guilty of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated domestic battery, criminal threat and two counts of battery.  

Last September 18th, a 41-year-old woman called 911 from the parking lot of a Dollar General store in Wichita where she fled after escaping a home on North Market.   During Charles’ trial the jury heard testimony that he confined the woman, pulled out her hair, strangled her to unconsciousness, and struck her with a golf club.
