Buffalo Man Convicted for Domestic Abuse, Faces 25 Years
Deandre Grayson, 25, was convicted as charged of Burglary in the First Degree, Aggravated Criminal Contempt and two counts of Aggravated Family Offense before State Supreme Court Justice Deborah A. Haendiges, according to Acting District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty, Jr.
His current conviction follows another conviction for domestic violence from December in which Grayson pleaded guilty to Assault in the Second Degree, Aggravated Family Offense and Intimidating a Victim or Witness in the Third Degree.
In 2014 Grayson apparently beat the mother of one of his children in the face while driving, took her to a house and continued to assault her, kicking her about her body and pouring mustard and baking soda on her while she attempted to clean her injuries, according to acting District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty, Jr.
Once Grayson learned that Buffalo Police Detectives had gone to the house and collected evidence which corroborated the attack, he called the victim and threatened her.
Grayson pleaded guilty on the eve of trial and was sentenced on December 3, 2015 to 7 years in state prison. At the time of his plea, he faced the second indictment which involved a different woman with whom he also has children.
In that case, the woman had an order of protection because Grayson had previously assaulted her. Grayson pleaded guilty and will be sentenced on April 4, 2016 before Justice Haendiges, where he faces a prison term of 25 years.
