FLORENCE COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A Florence County man who partially paralyzed and sexually assaulted a woman in 2021 was sentenced Monday, according to documents obtained by News13.

Philip David Hannah pleaded guilty to domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and was sentenced to 15 years in prison, suspended to eight years with credit for time served. After he’s released, he’ll have five years of probation, according to documents.

Hannah has spent 585 days in jail, according to the documents. Online booking records show he was transported to state prison on Thursday to begin his sentence.
