Man gets 8 years in prison for assault on Richmond County deputy

An Augusta man convicted last month of aggravated assault on an officer was sentenced Monday to serve eight years in prison.

Once Roderick Haynes, 29, completes his prison term, he will have an additional 12 years to serve on probation, Judge James G. Blanchard Jr. ordered Monday.

A Richmond County Superior Court convicted Haynes on May 21, finding him guilty of the felony assault charge and misdemeanor charges of obstruction of an officer, fleeing and driving under the influence. Witnesses at trial testified Haynes nearly struck Deputy Michael Garner with his vehicle on Mother’s Day 2013.
