Albany -- Prosecutors say they plan to re-try an Albany man they say is the head of the CME Rattlers street gang, after a Dougherty County jury fails to convict him during his trial.

Twenty-one-year old Michael Williams, known as ‘Mike Mike,'  was acquitted of charges he robbed a man after beating him with a steel mailbox post.  The jury could not reach a verdict on aggravated assault charges.  Prosecutors say the state plans to retry him on those charges.

Carl Smith was handed a 20 year sentence after he was found guilty of cutting two women during a four hour police standoff.

Prosecutors say Smith held two women and a child at knife point July 15th, 2007, because he was upset over a break up with the mother of his children.  SWAT teams surrounded a house on Seventh Avenue before ending the standoff.

The jury found Smith guilty of kidnapping, aggravated assault, and cruelty to children. He was sentenced to serve ten years in prison without parole, and another ten years on probation.

And 17-year-old Rontravious Porter was found guilty of two counts of aggravated assault by a Dougherty County jury, after he fired three shots at a passing car.

Prosecutors say Porter was sitting on a bicycle in the middle of Swift Street July 25th, when a man and his 11-year-old son drove by him. Porter fired three shots at the car, but did not strike either of the people.

Porter will be sentenced Monday.
