    NEW YORK -- A 30-year-old Bronx man has been convicted of assaulting a nurse at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in March 2002.

    Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson said Andre Jeffries admitted to beating Charina Adamos.

    Jeffries could get 14 years in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 29.

    Johnson said Jeffries was hiding in the emergency room at the hospital on March 2, 2002 when the nurse walked in. The suspect allegedly grabbed the woman's smock and demanded money. He then allegedly punched her in the head several times.

    When the victim screamed Jeffries stuck his fingers down her throat and tried to rip out her vocal cords, Johnson said. He injured her soft pallet and tonsils. The woman was hospitalized for five days to recover from her injuries.

    Johnson said a doctor and police officer saw Jeffries leaving the room with blood on his hands. He screamed out that someone was hurt in the room and he tried to run out, but was stopped.

    14 years in prison - where he will have government-protected rights and probably won't serve anywhere near that? That's it??? Not enough IMO.
