    By Joe Gorman,


    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A judge Friday denied a request by a man who already posted $75,000 bond in a felonious assault case to also have his house arrest revoked.

    Judge Maureen Sweeney in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court denied the request by Joshua Clardy, 35, who faces a charge of felonious assault, a second-degree felony, for beating a woman in Youngstown.

    Police were called Jan. 26 to St. Elizabeth Health Center for a report of a woman who was beaten . The woman told police she was beaten at a home in different rooms with various objects.

    Clardy was not arrested until Feb. 7 in Campbell. He managed to post $75,000 bond after his arraignment in municipal court with the provision that he be placed on electronically monitored house arrest and that he have no contact with the victim.

    He filed a motion Monday asking that he no longer have to be on house arrest.

    In their objection, which was filed before Judge Maureen Sweeney, prosecutors said Clardy’s request should be denied because of the severity of the victim’s injuries.

    The motion said the victim had to be treated at a hospital for injuries “all over her body,” that there was blood throughout her home and that she was beaten in front of her 5-year-old child.
