Justin Hansen, the man convicted of beating an Albuquerque woman with a shovel nearly killing her, is still fighting his sentence. 

Hansen is serving the maximum 18 years for attacking Brittani Marcell ten years ago. 

Hansen says the sentence is too hard on his family, and asked Judge  Cindy Leos to reduce his sentence. He says he should get credit for the year he spent on house arrest before his trial. 

Judge Leos denied that request. Hansen’s attorney is now appealing her ruling.
