NEWTON, GA (WALB) - A Newton man was sentenced to 15 years, after pleading guilty to Discharging a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Crime.
Richard Bynes, 30, was sentenced as a career offender based on his two prior bank robbery convictions in 2005.
Camilla Police responded to reports of shots fired at an apartment complex on January 26, 2015.

This case was investigated by the DEA, GBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
