ODESSA - An Odessa man will spend a long time behind bars for attacking a woman back in 2011.
Gary McCoy was sentenced to 35 years in prison for hitting Rosemary Wilson with his knee and knocking her teeth out.
The sentence came down after McCoy asked for the judge to decide his punishment instead of a jury.
The Assistant District Attorney asked for a stiffer punishment because of his past convictions.
McCoy will also have to pay a $10,000 fine.
