A Texas man whose tattooed visage made his booking photo a viral sensation has been sentenced.
Jacob Pauda, of Lubbock, was convicted last week of violently assaulting his pregnant girlfriend in February 2016.
The 31-year-old was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison.
Pauda was allegedly high on cocaine when he accused his girlfriend of cheating on him and questioned if the baby was his, according to an arrest report filed by the City of Lubbock Police Department.
“Have you been doing drugs?” his unnamed girlfriend told police she asked him after Pauda “took off his shirt and was walking around… acting awkward.”
The man, whose entire face is covered with a tattoo of what appears to be a skull, initially denied taking drugs, but then allegedly confessed to doing "two bumps earlier," according to the police report.
After accusing her of cheating on him, Pauda allegedly attacked his girlfriend as she lay on their bed, punching her repeatedly in the face, police said.
"Jacob, please leave me alone," the woman reportedly said, trying to scratch at Pauda to stop the attack.
But the girlfriend said Pauda threatened her, saying, "Don’t try and scratch me, or it will be worse for you.”
After he stopped punching the woman, Pauda went to the kitchen and grabbed a large butcher knife and went after her, chasing her around the bed, the report said.
Pauda dropped the knife and lunged at the woman, grabbing her by her hair and throwing her down on the ground before kicking her in the face, she told police.
The girlfriend said that as she called her mother and Pauda’s mother for help, he attacked her again, slamming her head into metal furniture about five times before demanding she leave.
When she refused, Pauda grabbed his two sons from their rooms and left the house, the report said.
The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries, officials said.
Pauda was arrested days later.
