New arrest sends Augusta man back to prison

An Augusta man who previously served time for aggravated battery will return to prison because of a new arrest.

Larry Robert Kersey, 28, was in court Thursday for a probation violation hearing. Because of his arrest on charges of theft, possession of methamphetamine and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, his probation officer recommended the judge revoke Kersey’s remaining eight years on probation.

After also hearing from an officer who searched the home where Kersey lived on Feb 23, Judge Michael N. Annis revoked Kersey’s probation, sending him to prison for eight years.
