AUGUSTA (AP) — A Maine man who threw bleach in the face of a 60-year-old woman has pleaded guilty.

Charles Cortright III was sentenced to serve about five months of a three-year jail sentence in Kennebec County Superior Court this week, but was freed because he was given credit for time served.

The Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1GYVSD5 ) reported that the 46-year-old Cortright, who lived in Augusta at the time but now lives in Westbrook, pleaded guilty to charges including domestic violence assault with a dangerous weapon.

Authorities say Cortright had an argument with the victim in March 2013.

He knocked on the woman’s door, claiming to be a police officer. When she opened the door, Cortright threw bleach in her face. She required hospitalization.

The suspect and the victim knew each other.
