Sentencing for three convicted of hitting sheriff's deputy

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. - Three people convicted of hitting a Washington County, Tennessee Sheriff's Deputy were sentenced Monday afternoon.

Dalvin Stephens, Reginald Dewayne Smith and Ashley Nicole McGraw were found guilty of attempted aggravated robbery and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon in May.

On Monday a judge sentenced Smith to six years in jail. Stephens got a five year sentence and McGraw will spend four years on a supervised corrections program.

After the sentencing we caught up with Deputy Gary Daugherty, the man injured when he was hit by a car while trying to deploy spike strips. "It's closure. I can move on and get back to work and not have to think about it anymore, so I'm happy to finally have some closure," he said.

The District Attorney's office in Washington County, Tennessee tells us Stephens and Smith will serve their sentences concurrent, which means their time for all charges will be served all together, not consecutively.
