LINCOLN COUNTY, OREGON, Ore. — An Idaho man who brutally beat a transgender woman after she used a women’s bathroom at an Oregon coast park has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison. 

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports 37-year-old Fred Costanza was convicted by a Lincoln County jury last month of assault and harassment in the Aug. 24 attack that shattered Lauren Jackson’s jaw and fractured her skull. 

The jury also found Costanza guilty of a bias crime under Oregon’s newly revamped hate crime law, which includes protections for those who identify as transgender. 

Circuit Judge Sheryl Bachart gave Costanza a 70-month sentence, the mandatory minimum for second-degree assault and ordered him to pay restitution for the injuries Jackson sustained.
