Legitimate News

Some guy named Ricky Roghair was just sentenced to 99 years in prison by a Wise County jury for aggravated assault. Since I didn't watch any of it, I really don't know much other than (1) he used a weapon the State called a deadly weapon (a fireplace poker, not a red hot poker, just a fireplace poker), (2) he had a prior felony conviction which increased the range of punishment from 2 to 20 years to 5 to 99 years/life, (3) the victim was a female who might have ended up with a pierced cheek because of the incident, and (4) I think it took place in Runaway Bay.
