WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County District Attorney’s Office announced that a jury found Brian Thuer, 41, of Kennett Square, guilty of Simple Assault for the physical assault of his 35-year-old wife in April 2020. He will be sentenced at a later date.

DA Deb Ryan said, “Domestic violence is often swept under the rug, away from the eyes of friends and family. This victim, however, had the strength to seek medical help and contact law enforcement. Thank you to the jury for seeing through the shameless blame-the-victim defense.”

Authorities state that on April 24, 2020, Kennett Township Police responded to a domestic disturbance on Pierce Lane in Kennett Township, where the victim had been physically assaulted. The victim told investigators that her husband strangled her then pushed her to the ground during an argument. The victim suffered a broken back as a result of the attack.
