A man from Florida who tied up his wife's lover and hacked off his penis with a pair of scissors has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Alex Bonilla, 51, had been charged with kidnapping to inflict bodily harm, burglary while armed, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a firearm for the incident on July 14, 2019.
Last month he entered a plea of no contest on these charges, meaning he admitted no guilt for the crimes but allowed the court to determine his punishment for the charges.
At Gilcrest County Court the father-of-five, who is employed as a dairy worker, was handed a 20-year prison sentence, 10 years of probation and ordered to pay more than $251,000.
Bonilla has been jailed since July 2019, when he was arrested for allegedly mutilating his wife's 32-year-old lover and next-door neighbor at his home in Gainesville.
The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office said the victim called 911 around 11am on July 14, 2019, and said Bonilla, who was his neighbor, had broken into his home armed with a gun.
