Former inmate at Augusta prison pleads guilty to assault on guard

A former inmate at the Augusta State Medical Prison who broke a guard’s nose pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated battery.

Donte D. Carter, 29, pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court. He was sentenced to five years in prison, to be followed by five years on probation for the May 12, 2012, assault.

Carter, who is now in Valdosta State Prison, is still serving a 20-year prison term for a 2010 armed robbery in Laurens County.
