A Prunedale man now faces up to 10 years and four months in prison being convicted on three felony battery charges for beating and threatening a Pacific Grove woman last year, according to the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office. Gregory Casler, 43, was found guilty Friday on charges of inflicting great bodily injury on a former co-habitant, battery causing serious bodily injury and criminal threats, according to the district attorney’s office. Jurors deliberated for two hours before reaching a verdict Friday.
Prosecutors said that on June 11, 2011, Casler entered the victim’s Pacific Grove home where he hit her in the face multiple times, causing her to fall and hit her head. The defendant then threatened the woman – referred to in court as Jane Doe – and kicked her all over her body according to the district attorney’s office. The victim lost consciousness and Casler fled the scene, leaving her with two black eyes, a fractured jaw, and abrasions covering her face, among other injuries, prosecutors said. Casler is set to be sentenced next month.
