An Augusta woman who attacked a disabled relative pleaded guilty Friday in Richmond County Superior Court.
Judge Michael N. Annis accepted a plea negotiation for Shirley J. White, sentencing her to two years in prison followed by eight years on probation for aggravated assault. Annis’ sentence includes a recommendation that White be allowed to enter a drug treatment program in prison.
White, 41, sent her stepfather to the hospital on Aug. 3. The victim was disabled from spinal surgery and a tracheotomy.
