Cobb police went to the couple’s Booth Court home after Alvarez called 911 and falsely reported that his wife assaulted him, Isaza said. Investigators determined he lied and charged him with aggravated assault, false imprisonment, terroristic threats, obstruction of an officer, false report of a crime and three counts of simple battery. He was convicted on all charges.
“This defendant physically and mentally abused his wife for years,” Assistant District Attorney Lauryn Perry said. “The pain he has caused is compounded by his complete ignorance of the reprehensible nature of his actions, as well as his failure to accept any responsibility.”
