Marietta man gets 10 years behind bars for aggravated assault


A Marietta man pled guilty to two counts of aggravated assault last week and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.  

Daniel Henderson, 46, pled guilty to charges from an aggravated assault that occurred in 2021. His guilty plea was entered five days before his trial was set to begin in Cobb County Superior Court and almost two years after he choked and stabbed his girlfriend during an incident on Feb. 13, at a Motel 6 in Cobb. 

Henderson and his girlfriend had an argument at the motel which led to Henderson choking her and stabbing her 11 times, lacerating both her kidney and liver. The Cobb County DA’s office said Henderson left the motel, while his injured girlfriend made it into the elevator and down to the lobby. She was found by a clerk who called 911. Henderson was arrested on March 15, 2021, in Douglas County.

Henderson’s negotiated plea with the DA’s office was heard before Superior Court Judge Vic Reynolds. In addition to 10 years in prison, Reynolds sentenced Henderson to five years on probation.
