ODESSA - An Odessa man will spend the next five years in prison after he plead guilty to beating up his mom with a chisel and a rubber hammer last year.
Robert Uballe was arrested for two counts of aggravated assault.
But he's sick and asked for a lighter sentence so he could get treatment.
One of the counts against him was dropped.
He'll spend about four years in jail because he was given credit for one year of time served.
