Probation for bat-swinging Maui woman


UPI News Service, 12/01/2012 

A Hawaii woman who cracked her boyfriend with a baseball bat told a judge her anger-management therapy was going pretty well.

Mirivic Simpliciano, 30, of Wailuku was placed on five years probation in a Maui courtroom this week after pleading no-contest to beating her boyfriend in April, and told the court she thought she now had a handle on things.

"After the incident, I took the initiative to get some help," Simpliciano said.

The Maui (Hawaii) News said the woman's public defender told Judge Rhonda Loo his client was indeed getting her feet on the ground with the help of a therapist.

But the judge wasn't entirely convinced. "You do have an anger problem," Loo told Simpliciano. "You need to keep it in check. If you don't keep it in check, I'm going to check you into prison."

The incident began when Simpliciano's boyfriend came in a little late one evening. She started out flailing at him with a foam-rubber bat and a toy light-saber. But she moved up from kid toys to the real deal and let him have it with a metal bat, the newspaper said.

"Couples argue, but most couples don't take it to the level of getting a baseball bat and using their boyfriend's body for batting practice," Loo said. "You did cross the line."
