NY - Man will be sentenced for abortion, assault though fetus survived, Troy
TROY, New York (AP) -- A man who stabbed his pregnant girlfriend will go to prison for performing an illegal abortion, even though the child survived.
Sean Brown, 20, of Albany, pleaded guilty Friday in Rensselaer County Court to one count each of abortion and assault. He will be sentenced June 2 to prison terms of 11 years for assault and one to three years for abortion, prosecutors said.
Abortion is illegal in New York if it causes or intends to cause a miscarriage without the woman's consent, or if it is performed by someone other than a licensed physician.
Brown lunged at Cashawnda Rowlett in her darkened apartment and stabbed her 10 times in the fingers, thigh, hip and abdomen shortly after she told him she was two months pregnant, police said.
