ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A man convicted in a 2016 shooting death at Applejaxx Sports Bar was sentenced to 25 years Wednesday.
Eugene Grant III, who was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter in September, was sentenced to 20 years for the voluntary manslaughter charge and 5 years for possession of a firearm by convicted felon.
Grant did not make a statement and showed no emotion as Judge Denise Marshall handed down his sentence.
