'Sopranos' actor sentenced to anger management therapy

Nov 21, 2005 11:28PM PST

NEW YORK (AP) -- "Sopranos" actor Vincent Pastore pleaded guilty Monday to attempting to assault a former girlfriend last spring.

As part of the plea deal, Pastore will perform 70 hours of community service, attend six months of weekly anger management therapy and pay a $190 fine. If convicted at trial, he could have been sentenced to as much as a year in jail.

Pastore, 59, was accused of attacking Lisa Regina, 44, during an argument in the Little Italy neighborhood. Prosecutors said he punched her in the back of the head, grabbed her hair and forced her head down on a car's gear shift.

When the judge asked Monday

Why the insult, Mark?

JJ was just trying to understand the point you were trying to make. He might, in fact, agree with you, but you haven't given him a chance to state his position yet.

Nobody called you Frank Burns
Nov 23, 2005 5:09AM PST

I always address you as Mark. I said you were an SE version of Frank Burns. In other words, I was comparing you with a TV character. I don't call you ''Frank'' when I post. And I prefer to be called Josh.

didn't mean to be rude or anything. I simply didn't understand what Mark meant. Especially since he started the sentence (have I understood now) with a lower case letter and the sentence before didn't have a period. It looked strange when reading it from "When the judge asked Monday

and if you did this how many yrs and how big a fine?" and then including Marks comment in that sentence. I figured out that the last part didn't belong to it when having read the article, but it still was very confusing. if the word "you" would have been written in italics I had understood exactly what Mark meant.

And Mark, if I hurt your feelings in any way, I am very sorry!
