POST-INTELLIGENCER

A Kentucky man who pleaded guilty to a nonfatal shooting was among those who pleaded guilty to charges against them during Monday’s arraignment day in Henry County Circuit Court.

Tyrone Harris, 21, of Gilbertsville was sentenced to serve 12 years in the Department of Correction when he pleaded guilty to an amended charge of aggravated assault. He had originally been charged with attempted first-degree murder.

The incident took place in January 2018 when Harris shot a man riding in a car at Tige Robinson Apartments in Paris. The man was treated at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville for his gunshot wound. It was suspected by police at the time that the shooting was the result of a dispute about money.

In another case, a man accused of aggravated assault was given a deferred plea.

Charles Andrew Bratton, 34, 130 Druid Lane, Paris pleaded guilty to an amended charge of reckless endangerment. Judge Donald Parish, however, declined to accept Bratton’s guilty plea.

This means that if Bratton meets the terms of his probation for a two-year period, this charge will be expunged from his record.

Other defendants who pleaded guilty Monday — listed with age, last known address, charges, and sentences — include:

• Nazih Nored, 40, 620 Cooper St., Paris — two counts of aggravated robbery.

Hutchison is attending a long term, inpatient drug and alcohol program as part of his sentence. When he successfully completes that program, the remainder of his sentence will be served on supervised state probation.

The sentences for one of the theft charges and the possession charge will be served consecutively while the sentence for the additional theft charge will be served concurrently to the other charges.
