Guilty plea in mother’s stabbing

Son sentenced to five years in prison

POSTED: January 4, 2013 12:33 a.m.

A Cumming man will serve five years in prison for stabbing his mother in June 2011.

Ryan Cocuzza, 32, pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count each of aggravated assault family violence and aggravated battery family violence before Forsyth County Superior Court Chief Judge Jeffrey S. Bagley.

His sentence includes five years to serve behind bars and 25 years of intensive probation. He also must pay a fine of $2,605.

According to court records, the negotiated plea did not include processing of five other counts on which Cocuzza had been indicted.

They included three additional battery charges, one count of aggravated assault and possession of a knife during commission of a felony.

Cocuzza was arrested on June 5, 2011, after he stabbed his then 60-year-old mother at their Adair Park home.

Authorities said Bonnie Cocuzza survived the incident, during which she was reportedly stabbed several times in the upper body and arm. Her son also stabbed himself.
