WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – A man accused of beating and hog-tying his ex-wife will spend 12 years in prison.

Judge Lisa Rice sentenced Luis Olivera after he was convicted of aggravated assault and kidnapping against his ex-wife. The sentence is to be served at 100 percent, meaning Olivera will not be eligible for parole.

In March, a jury found Olivera guilty of attacking his ex-wife inside her Jonesborough home and tying her ankles and wrists with zip ties in December of 2015, as their young son hid in a closet.
