Derry man misses sentencing hearing in Christmas day assault on infant


MANCHESTER — A Derry man who reached an agreement to plead guilty to assaulting a 2-month-old infant on Christmas Day 2012 failed to appear at his sentencing in Hillsborough County Superior Court Monday.

.
The court issued an arrest warrant against Brian P. Reeves for defaulting on the his court appearance.

Reeves, 34, 23L Kendall Pond Road, Derry, was indicted last February of second-degree assault for allegedly slapping the infant girl across the face inside a 284 Spruce St. apartment. The child suffered bruises and a swollen eye. Reeves is not the father of the child. The state sought an extended 10- to 30-year term if Reeves is convicted of the Class B felony.
..
Reeves reached a negotiated agreement with the state on May 31 in which he agreed to plead guilty to the felony in exchange for the state recommending he serve a 2- to 7-year prison term, court records show. If the court rejected the plea deal, a prosecutor said the state would recommend Reeves serve a maximum 7-year prison term.
