An 18 year-old Lindale man, Avon Trey Grissom, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on Thursday following his arrest on a shooting on Wax Road back in April of this year. Grissom pleaded guilty in front of Judge Tami Colston and was sentenced to 10 years with 24 to 30 months served at the Floyd County Prison Work Release Center.


He was also sentenced as a first offender, which means his record will be erased if he completes his sentence, and is not allowed any contact with the victim, Charles Williams.

If Grissom fails to comply with his regulations he could be resentenced for up to 40 years in prison.

Arrest reports said that Grissom was charged after he fired numerous shots at Williams, one hit hitting his leg.
