Daniel LaPorta of Cobb County was sentenced Monday to two years of jail and three years probation after assaulting his wife. 

The 59-year-old was convicted for putting his wife in a choke hold until she passed out and tying her up using duct tape. He was charged with false imprisonment and simple battery. 

District Attorney, Drew Healy, says this case proves "that even one act of violence in a relationship can be dangerous and have serious consequences.”

The couple had known each other since childhood. They were married just a few years before heading to divorce.
