A Pittsfield man has pleaded guilty to a slew of charges in a domestic violence case in the Berkshires.

Dominic Simonetta, 49, admits to attacking a victim in September 2019. He punched, threatened and hit the victim with a machete — all while not letting the victim leave.

The victim was able to escape the residence and call 911.

Simonetta is expected to serve two to three years in state prison.
