Brute sentenced to one year after parking spot punch left woman in coma
Oscar Fuller, the muscle-bound brute who infamously punched a woman into a coma -- as they argued nose-to-nose over an E. 14th St. parking spot -- was cuffed and hauled off to serve one year behind bars during an emotional sentencing this morning. Fuller, 36, held his head high as he was led away by court officers. So did his young, still brain-damaged victim, Lana Rosas, though her eyes brimmed with tears, in the audience at Manhattan Supreme Court. "Yes," she whispered softly to her mom, Angie Harrison, as Justice Bonnie Wittner rendered the maximum sentence allowed -- which is not nearly enough, the judge stressed.
Rosas was standing in an empty spot to hold it for a friend on a February night in 2011 when Fuller arrived. "This whole incident was his fault," the judge said. "The punch was an extraordinary one, according to witnesses with no ties to either side," added Wittner, who had presided over Fuller's May assault trial. Witnesses had evoked Mike Tyson, testifying that Fuller shouted, "F--k you, you bitch," then twisted his body back to wind up for a blow that literally sent the petite, 4'11'' Rosas' head into the pavement.

Every one of those jurors needs a serious punch to the head then.
Steroid rage - bet on it
Incredible isn’t it? “He didn’t intend to cause serious physical injury”... Hmmm, so punching a woman who is under 5 foot tall is akin to a air kiss only this one went wrong.
I don’t understand men who hit women.
I didn't have to look at the pics after I saw that.
Sounds as if this is a case that cries out for vigilante justice. I hope her family gives him his once he is released.
Sounds like they already got one.
True horrors come out of the jury system. These people were simply not competent to be jurors.
Punching out a girl, what a wuss. Kudos to her for standing up to the jerk. She has guts, on the other hand, she probably didn’t think he would actually hit her.
The jury should be jailed for its idiotic decision.
back in the day, women were beaten at home. now guys do it right out in public.
Overhit by miles. How could he do that? I feel sorry for her and I bet she learned something about staying safe.
I could never do what the little girl did though, stand for a car to park, especially with someone else, with a car, showing up first. I would be embarrassed, myself. She was young and strong and aggressive enough to make a potentially dangerous and foolish decision over a parking place.
I think it caused something like road rage.
She was 4’10”. He ruined her life by decking her with one punch. He should have gotten 10 years but I suspect an OJ jury forced the jurors to come up with this compromise verdict that comes with a one year maximum sentence
If he didn’t intend to cause serious injury, he should have been sentenced to twenty years for felony stupidity, because he ought to have known that when you punch a much smaller person hard in the head, you will cause serious harm - and a dangerous moron is too dangerous to be let out.
And throw the jurors in for a year apiece - misdemeanor stupidity - for believing such an unbelievable defense.
Consider the NYC jury pool. At least they didn't return an OJ verdict.
Look in his eyes: no soul in there.
Yeah, if 0 had a son he would be just like Oscar.
Is that Don Cheadle?
I agree, he should have gotten 7 years. A friend of mines son hit his girlfriend in the face. Didn't knock her down, she wasn't really hurt at all. And he didn't intend to hurt her. But he was sentenced to 7 years and just got out of prison after serving the full term. She had a good lawyer.
Why would you say that? Did you see his picture?
Onde of Obama/Sharpton/Jackson’s boys. They will be useful when the SHTF is cell phoned in to start so the elections can be suspended.
If I have counted correctly, this is the fourth or fifth posted instance today of “one of Holder’s People” behaving like an animal. Fortunately, a couple of the other posts involved the use of a firearm to defend against the “Holder’s Person,” resulting in that individual expiring on the spot! Too bad this lovely young woman wasn’t living where having a gun is a “crime.”
of course I saw his picture - after the jury convicted him.
The crime was committed well over a YEAR ago.
Way longer than the time required for the drug’s effects and side effects to wear completely off.
I see people like this in the gym every single day.
And many, if not most, of them are total jerks that you should stay well away from in a physical situation unless you are armed and prepared to kill.
Always a tougher bubba in prison and hopefully some very bad ass bubba lays a smackdown on this punk.
I understand the gym part very well. I go to Bailey’s Powerhouse in a college town, so I see users all the time. You might be correct, but we’ll never know for sure. Some people are just violent a**holes.
...who won't be saving parking spots anymore.
I'm not buying the innocent victim meme on this one. I've been in similar incidents twice where I was being chest bumped and shoved by a rude, loud mouthed woman who was itching for a show down. I had the brains to walk away. On one occasion, the person followed me in her car for several miles until I shook her.
That said, this guy deserve more than one yer.
You can count on that, beating the stuffing out of him is how the other primates prove how tough they are.
He has not seen tough until he is in “genaral population”...
