A Hanover man convicted last month of slashing the face, neck and head of a man outside a Hanover tavern must spend at least a decade in prison.

Jesus Quiles Jr., 38, of 410-1/2 Baltimore St., was sentenced Monday to 10 to 20 years in state prison by Common Pleas Judge Craig T. Trebilcock, according to court records.

On Jan. 20, a jury found Quiles guilty of aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment. Jurors acquitted him of attempted homicide.

Hanover Police said Quiles was inside the Franklin House Tavern, 300 N. Franklin St., about 10:25 p.m. March 25, 2010, and convinced Marcus Camilo to walk outside.

Once outside, Quiles used a knife to badly injure Camilo, now of Miami.

Camilo suffered slashing wounds to his throat, neck, both sides of his face, hand and on his upper left arm, according to police. He was taken to York Hospital in critical condition, but has since recovered, police said.

Witnesses told officers Quiles attacked Camilo because Camilo hit Quiles' girlfriend, court documents state.
