Local10.com - News - Man Sentenced For Attacking Girlfriend For Supporting Kerry: "FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- An 18-year-old man was sentenced to 90 days in jail Wednesday for attacking his girlfriend after learning she planned to vote for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry last fall.

Steven Soper pleaded guilty to false imprisonment, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, battery and resisting arrest without violence.

In addition to three months in the Broward County Jail, Circuit Judge Jorge Labarga sentenced Soper to five years of probation and 100 hours of community service.

The judge also ordered Soper to write a letter of apology to 18-year-old Stacey Silveira, who said she and Soper dated for two years.

Soper is also required to complete a batterers' intervention program, undergo psychological and substance abuse evaluations and complete any recommended treatment, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

Silveira's neighbor called 911 on Oct. 26 after seeing Soper carrying Silveira as she screamed 'no, no, no,' Assistant State Attorney Tim Beckwith said. Soper pointed a knife at Silveira and threatened to kill her, Beckwith added.

The couple's relationship had been volatile at times, defense attorney Michael Salnick said, but it became violent when Soper learned of his girlfriend's decision to support Kerry over President Bush."
