Man who beat black woman in front of her daughter gets early release

 

JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) — A white man who was sentenced to six months in a Georgia jail for beating a black Army Reservist in front of her daughter and yelling racial slurs has been released early.

Worth County Sheriff Freddie Tompkins said Troy Dale West was released Dec. 3, 43 days after he began serving his sentence. He had roughly 4-1/2 months remaining on his sentence when he was turned over to deputies in October.

West could have faced more than 44 years in prison if convicted on felony charges in the beating of Tasha Hill in September 2009 outside a metro Atlanta Cracker Barrel. The charges were reduced to misdemeanors in a plea deal.

Tompkins said having misdemeanors instead of felonies made West eligible to work off his time while in jail.
