Leonardo DiCaprio attacker sentenced to two years in prison

December 7, 2010 |  3:57 pm

A woman accused of slashing actor Leonardo DiCaprio's face with a glass during a 2005 party in the Hollywood Hills was sentenced Tuesday to two years in state prison.

Aretha Wilson, 40, a former model, is expected to receive 330 days credit for time served in Los Angeles County jail.

In November, she pleaded no contest in case.  After the June 17, 2005, attack the actor had to get 17 stitches in his face and ear.

Witness Eustace Hicks testified during a hearing earlier this year that he and DiCaprio were leaving the party with another friend when Wilson began cursing at the friend before striking DiCaprio with a wine glass.

Wilson fled to Canada after the incident, officials said.
