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.

I'll give Judge Blanchard Jr.

I'll give Judge Blanchard Jr. a thumbs up on this one. Sounds like an appropriate sentence.

Good Job

I agree Judge Blanchard did a good job sentencing the defendant proper sentence and in a timely manner. I wish this were the expected results for all cases and not the exception for all of our judges.

Seeing his rap sheet lets you understand how soft the courts have been to this guy. No wonder he doesn't fear justice. Probation now that's a joke, like this guy is going to be any different after he gets early release.
