(Portland, OR) -- A Hillsboro man is facing more than a decade behind bars for pushing his girlfriend off a balcony. A Washington County judge sentenced 27-year-old Jordan Adam Sutherland to just over eleven-and-a-half years in prison. Police arrested Sutherland last September for the incident in August. Sutherland's girlfriend suffered a fractured spine and a large cut to her head in the fall. Sutherland claims he was trying to save the woman from killing herself.
