Rubicon Man Re-Sentenced For 2012 Substantial Battery Case

(Rubicon) A Rubicon man guilty of felony Battery had prison time added on to his sentence Thursday. Graham Lulich was originally sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison on Substantial Battery charges with two repeaters. Judge Kristine Snow added another two-and-a-half years of incarceration stemming from the same domestic incident in 2012.

After officers arrived at the Rubicon residence nine years ago, they located Lulich armed with a knife trying to escape a second floor bedroom. The victim said Lulich awoke her and said he was going to kill her.

He then forced himself to vomit on her and said he was going to stab her eyes out to keep her from seeing what he was going to do to her. The victim was bitten and kicked. Lulich also knocked her out twice and when she came to, Lulich threatened to cut her fingers off and did cut her nose and ear.

At sentencing Assistant District Attorney Jin Ho Pack said this case is why the legislature created the repeater statutes.
