A man faces up to five years in prison for beating up a woman because she took too long getting out of a car and held up traffic in Newark.
Jurors Wednesday convicted Jahmil Jasper, 39, of aggravated assault.
According to prosecutors, Jasper punched the 51-year-old woman, who had undergone surgery, twice in the head back in December 2018.
Prosecutors say Jasper dragged her into the street and punched her four times as she lay on the ground and kicked her twice in the head.
The woman was treated at a hospital.
Jasper is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 20.
