"Cowardly."

That's the description from a local judge to the Lake Tahoe man who tried to kill his girlfriend with a Samurai sword back in October.

On Friday, the judge sentenced Steve Wasserman, 36, to "Seven Years to Life" for the attack.

Wasserman was convicted on charges of burglary, mayhem and use of a deadly weapon.

Wasserman was not in court for the sentencing...a move the judge called "cowardly."
