An Easton man is facing up to four years in prison for robbing and attacking a woman in the city's cemetery earlier this year.

Anthony Giamoni pleaded no contest to robbery Tuesday in Northampton County Court, according to the Morning Call.

He had tried to enter a plea last week, but had it rejected by the judge, who was concerned it was too lenient given the nature of the crime.

Giamoni, 30, of the 100 block of S. 12th Street, was charged in July with robbery, theft and simple assault. 

Police say Giamoni attacked an Easton woman in the city cemetery at N. Seventh Street in July. 

The woman testified in August that she and her son had been at the cemetery that day for a vigil with friends. When that ended, she said, she and her son stopped to visit her mother's grave. 

That's when Giamoni allegedly attacked her, punching and kicking the woman and pushing her son to the ground.

He got away with $600, which the woman said she'd gotten from the bank to pay her rent and to buy her son new shoes.

Giamoni punched the woman in the head, she testified, causing the grand mal seizures she'd suffered from to return. She also suffered two fractured ribs.

"It hurt to breathe," she testified. "Just pure pain."
