Former Notre Dame assistant football coach Corwin Brown has been given a four-year suspended prison sentence for striking his wife and holding her hostage with a handgun in a seven-hour standoff with police last August.
St. Joseph County Judge Jane Woodward Miller agreed Tuesday to allow Brown to avoid prison after hearing from his wife, Melissa, who said taking her husband away from his family and the counseling he is receiving would be harmful. She also said she did not feel like a victim.
Let's hope Corwin gets heathly soon. My thoughts go out to Corwin and his family as they get through this difficult time.
