CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A trial date was set Tuesday morning for a man who is accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Paul Lam, 61, originally pleaded guilty with the understanding that he would not face any jail time because the victim did not want him to go to jail.

However, the victim says that was a misunderstanding and she does want him in jail.

The judge threw out Lam's guilty plea and set a trial date for April 16, 2013.

The victim is also involved in a civil suit against Lam, and Lam is supposed to be providing payments to her, but he is not.

Lam is accused of striking the woman repeatedly in January of 2012, causing serious injuries.
