Man sentenced for jail riot; armed robbery trial set

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 Michael Noird of Albany plead guilty this morning to riot in a penal institution, and was sentenced to serve five years in prison.  

Prosecutors say Noird battered a Dougherty County  jail employee during a fight in October 2014. 

Noird, 22, will still stand trial later this year for armed robbery.  

Prosecutors say Noird pistol whipped and robbed Reginald Jones in front of his McArthur Street home in December 2013, and led police on a chase that injured an officer.
