Actor to Be Sentenced in Domestic Violence Case
Actor Tom Sizemore, who was convicted of seven misdemeanor counts in a domestic violence case involving former girlfriend Heidi Fleiss, is scheduled to be sentenced today.
Sizemore’s possible sentence ranges from probation and counseling to up to four years in jail.
On Aug. 15, a jury convicted Sizemore of domestic violence, criminal threats, vandalism and making obscene and harassing phone calls to Fleiss. He was acquitted of 10 other counts.
Deputy City Atty. Robert Y. Cha said the domestic violence charge on which Sizemore was convicted was for slugging Fleiss in the jaw during a quarrel at the Four Seasons Hotel.
Fleiss, who served 20 months in federal prison for tax evasion stemming from a high-priced call girl service, testified that she went to police after Sizemore threatened to kill her brother.
