The "person of interest" in the murdered model case has a criminal record for assaulting a girlfriend in 2005.

Ryan Alexander Jenkins -- the husband of Jasmine Fiore, who was found last Saturday strangled to death and stuffed in a suitcase -- was convicted in 2007 in Calgary, Canada. The woman he assaulted is Faern Jewell, his girlfriend at the time.

Jenkins' sentence included 15 months probation and mandatory counseling for "psychological/domestic violence/coping skills."

As for the "coping skills," he was ordered to attend outpatient treatment at a hospital for sex addiction.
