COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - News Leader 9 has learned that Rodger Scales was found guilty of nine out of 14 charges on August 1, and he could face up to 105 years in prison.
Per counsel, Scales was found guilty of the following charges:
~6 counts of aggravated assault
~Criminal attempt to commit a felony
~Conspiracy to commit an armed robbery
~Possession of a firearm by a felon
Scales has not been found guilty of the following charges:
~2 counts felony murder
~Possession of a firearm during a felony
~Criminal damage to a property
Scales is one of five men accused of taking an innocent man's life in a botched robbery on November 9, 2010. Authorities say the group of alleged killers targeted the wrong apartment looking for drugs and money.
The prosecutor gave her take on the jury's decision.
"I am satisfied that he's not going home, that's very important," said Muscogee County assistant district attorney LaRae Moore. "This is a dangerous man, as evidence we expect will come out during his sentencing."
Moore also told us she believes the jury had difficulty putting the firearm in Scales' hands, but she's glad the jury at least agreed he was involved in this crime.
