Allen Joseph Fisher

PERRY CO., Ill. - The man convicted of gouging out the eyes of a man he was attacking last year is going to have a long time to think about how to get his temper under control.

Allen Joseph Fisher, 52 of Swanwick, is the guy in Perry County who last year in April, reportedly chased down another man, Robert Pfister, 47, of Nashville in Washington County, and, driving him off the road, attacked him in the roadside ditch and gouged the man's eyes out with his fingers/thumbs. There was no indication as to why such a horrific attack was perpetrated, other than Fisher has a really bad temper and little self-control; reports indicate that Fisher was "mad that Pfister was driving down his street."

The attack left Pfister blind. Four months ago, Fisher was found guilty during a jury trial of Aggravated Battery Causing Great Bodily Harm Involving Torture, and Intimidation.

On Thursday, June 27, Judge James Campanella sentenced Fisher to 35 years in prison, with Campanella openly opining that he would've liked to have given Fisher more time (apparently he maxed out the statutory sentence.)
