Acid Attack: Nikolas Stefanatos Sentenced To 57 Months


The man convicted of splashing a corrosive substance on Tanya St-Arnauld has been sentenced to 57 months minus time served.

He's already served 41 months, that leaves another 16 months left to serve.

Nikolas Stefanatos, of Brossard, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in November.

In 2012, he sprayed acid on his former girlfriend, 29-year-old St-Arnauld, during a conjugal fight.

She suffered burns to a fifth of her body. She spent several days in an induced coma, and when revived, she had the mobility 'of an infant.'

The paint on the apartment wall near the scene of the fight bubbled and peeled off from being sprayed with the product that Stefanatos sprayed on St-Arnauld.

She still has scars all over her face and arms from the attack.
