Three months after she was allegedly grabbed by the neck and choked-then punched repeatedly in her face, her stomach, and her legs; Eyewitness News has learned that Michael Jaccarino, the man charged with attacking her, won't serve a day in jail.

Ms. Soler is convinced he's getting special treatment because Jaccarino is an assistant District Attorney in Brooklyn. "This man assaulted me, he could have killed me, and he's going to get a slap on the wrist?" Soler said.
