Crown and defence lawyers are on opposite sides of the sentencing spectrum in a recent domestic assault case.

Anthony Antle, 50, was convicted in October of assaulting his former partner in Conception Bay South.

In a rage, Antle pulled the woman down the hall by her hair, put a knife to her face and said no one would want her when he was finished.

The Crown is recommending that Antle get two-and-a-half to three years in prison.

But Antle's lawyers said a more appropriate sentence would be 90 days, served on weekends.

Antle will be sentenced in January.
