A 22-year-old man has been charged in the Nov. 17 shooting that hospitalized an Augusta man.

Kenneth Lavert Anderson has been charged with felony aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a first-time offender, according to Richmond County jail records.

About 10:25 p.m. on Nov. 17, Richmond County sheriff’s deputies found Xavier Alvin, 31, at the intersection of 15th Street and Swanee Quintet Boulevard, with a gunshot wound to the back of his right leg.

Alvin told deputies he was talking on his cell phone when he heard three gunshots and felt a sharp pain in his leg.

You can bet this guy will get the kid glove treatment when he goes to trial. Augusta's judges seem to love to go soft on 'first time offenders" I guess they think that it mitigates the crime committed somehow!

Boy, that charge has got "wrist slap" written all over it. First time offender has got NOTHING to do with it. He shot somebody. He is too stupid to walk the streets. Lock him. Lock all of them up...first time....every time.
