Salem woman pleads guilty to assault after evidence found on GoPro she made husband wear

Jillian Washburn

SALEM, Conn. (WTNH)–A Salem woman has plead guilty to abusing her husband, after evidence was found on a GoPro camera she made him wear because she didn’t trust him. The New London Day reports that 35-year-old Jillian Washburn pleaded no contest to seven years of abuse.

The assault ranged from beating him in front of their children, to mutilation that included cutting him in the penis with scissors, according to the prosecutor.

The plea deal will allow Washburn to serve only 8 years of an 18-year sentence, with five years of probation.

The judge said a family court would decide whether or not Washburn would be allowed to have contact with her children after she is released from prison.
