ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man is headed to prison for seven years for throwing hot grease on a woman.

22 year old Leonard Mobley pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated battery.

24 year old Tihesha Moore was burned in February when Mobley threw cooking grease on her and then wouldn't let her call for help.

Prosecutors said today her injuries are some of the worst they've seen.Moore said "I asked him to call for help. He actually refused to call for help. I was in there running back and forth from the shower for at least 30 minutes."

Besides the 20 year sentence, Mobley was also ordered to pay more than $110,000 for Moore's medical bills.
