Leonardo DiCaprio slasher sentenced to 2 years

Aretha Wilson, the Canadian woman accused of slashing Leonardo DiCaprio‘s face with a broken glass on June 17, 2005, has been sentenced to two years in jail. DiCaprio, pictured at left in September 2005, needed 17 stitches to close his face and ear. He underwent cosmetic surgery to cover the scar from the attack, which happened at a house party in Los Angeles. Wilson, 40,  who fled to Ontario after being charged, was extradited back to the United States. She pleaded no contest to assault using a deadly weapon. Her attorney stated that Wilson reportedly mistook DiCaprio for an ex-boyfriend. He says she will likely spend only six months in jail due to time served. Interestingly, Wilson smashed a glass bottle over her ex-boyfriend’s head a year after her attack on DiCaprio. Following release from prison in California, she will be deported back to Canada.

    The plastic surgery is amazing, you can’t tell anything ever happened in that picture. I wonder which side of his face it was.
