On September 23, 2021, at the calendar call for jury trials scheduled for the week of September 27, 2021, Corey Lee Daniel, 32, of Bowdon pleaded guilty to one count of Aggravated Assault, and two counts of Aggravated Battery. Daniel entered a non-negotiated guilty plea, after which Coweta Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Bill Hamrick sentenced Daniel to 20 years, with the first 15 years to be served in prison, also requiring that Daniel be banished from the Coweta Judicial Circuit when he is released from the Department of Corrections custody.
Assistant District Attorney Lara Myers prosecuted the case. Bremen Police Department Chief Brent Christopher, who was with the Bowdon Police Department at the time of the incident, was the lead investigator.
The evidence at trial would have shown that, on December 19, 2016, Daniel beat the victim repeatedly with a metal pipe. Daniel began attacking the victim as she was asleep in bed. After she initially was able to fend him off, Daniel continued assaulting her, striking her multiple times in the head, knocking her down, and chasing her through the residence. The victim’s screams woke up the homeowners, who were able to disrupt Daniel’s attack. Daniel then fled the scene, and law enforcement authorities apprehended him the following day. As a result of the assault, the victim underwent surgery for a skull fracture and brain bleeding.
The victim in this case not only suffered extreme physical injuries but also has had to deal with continuing trauma because of this brutal attack. My office remains committed to standing with victims of violence and asking the Court to impose substantial prison sentences for acts of violence.
