Man who attacked boy loses appeal

A man who attacked and threatened to kill a 3-year-old boy and his mother will have to serve his entire prison sentence, according to an appeals court decision.
Jessica Cuffman
Feb 25, 2013

Dwayne Gore, 37, was sentenced to the maximum year and a half in prison after he pleaded guilty in May 2012 to a single charge of domestic violence.

He had been charged with two counts of domestic violence after Sandusky police said he attacked the boy and his mother on Feb. 28, 2012. Gore grabbed the boy’s legs and pulled him off of a couch, causing him to hit his head on a coffee table, according to court records. He then took the boy into a bedroom and slammed him so hard onto the mattress he caused the bed to break.

When the boy tried to swing at Gore, Gore grabbed his arm and twisted it, trying to break it, according to court records. When the boy’s mother intervened, Gore slammed her into several walls and threatened to kill her and her son.

The woman shielded her son from any further blows, placing him on the couch and lying on top of him. Gore finally left the house when the woman threatened to call police.

After he was charged with two felony counts of domestic violence, Gore agreed to plead guilty to one count if prosecutors would dismiss the second charge and recommend he get a year in prison.

But Erie County Common Pleas Judge Roger Binette gave him the max imum sentence of 18 months.

“Individuals like you do not belong living in a society that we want to live in, and that’s one free of any threats and harm to other individuals, more importantly, to children, a 3-year-old child,” Binette said during the sentencing hearing.

I wish his sentence was longer than 18 months. 18 years would be great! Agree with the judge's comment.

No LIFE IMPRISONMENT would be Ideal for this A$$-hole

That must've made him feel like a big man, beating on a 3-yr. old child. Shame on him! I hope he gets the snot beat out of him while he's in prison, so he can get a taste of his own medicine.

Mama of 4

I hope be gets his in prision when they find out what he did!

I hope he meets someone nice in prison so he can be tossed around and threatened on a daily basis and then live in fear for 18 months. Maybe Bruno the backdoor bandit will come to see him at night in his cell.

Truth be Known: He is an established Sex Offender. He had served 39 mos, then got out, did the same thing again, went back into Prison** He does not careabout what he does or who he does it TO! He has no remorse for his actions whatsoever. He has said in the past that he enjoys the joint** because He Is A Kingpin and has no fear of anything or anyone in there! So it really doesn't matter what time they give him... this will actually be his 6th time in PRISON, as far as I know personally. He Makes K.Randleman and C.Clinton and M.Milner look like little boys from Barker School. They really need to lock him away with NO B O N D; and throw the key away. Oh if they give him work release-- he's too lazy and will not work--and will ultimately refuse to do it! So please if any prayers are answered--please God --Make this child-molester and thief and EVIL-NESS, be made to pay for his wrong doings of others; and that he reap the repercussions {sp} for his evil ways. Thank You!

It's too bad the state guidelines only allow Judge Binette to give him 18 months. This creep needs to be permanently removed from society because he has proved over and over again that he cannot conduct himself in a manner worthy of life outside of a prison. My heart as a mom goes out to the little guy swinging his arm trying to protect himself against this piece of crap. As for the mom I applaud her for placing her body over her son, however I do have to wonder what were the circumstances of her relationship with this reprehensible freak she may have called her boyfriend? It's a domestic charge so I am assuming they were living together. The dark side of cohabitating is that it raises the risk for child abuse by at least 33%. An abusive live-in boyfriend usually has no emotional connection with the children...they see them as in the way or even competition. In any event the mother had to have an inkling of the criminal activity that was in this guy's background either that or she has absolutely no good sense of judging bad character. Very little sympathy here for putting her child in harm's way. I'm just relieved the little guy survived.

There is something wrong here. 8 domestic violence charges, 4 assault charges, 2 charges for menacing and we recommend 1 year?

How does some beat the crap out of a small child and think they have ant right to an appeal?? It's bad enough that the assault took place and it's worse that the guy doesn't feel he should sit in prison the full 18 months. He should get longer than that so he can sit and figure out how to not be a complete loser
