by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sylvester Provencio was found guilty of aggravated battery, a felony, by a Sumner County jury late this afternoon for his part in a brawl that took place more than 13 months ago in rural Sumner County.
Provencio, 22, of Caldwell was also found guilty of misdemeanor charges of criminal deprivation of a vehicle, battery, and disorderly conduct. He will be sentenced on June 23 at 1:30 p.m. His accomplice Nick Reedy, 33, of Caldwell, pled guilty last week to aggravated battery and criminal deprivation of a vehicle.
“I think the sentencing will be comparable to that of Nick Reedy. We are anticipating Provencio getting anywhere between 32 to 35 months,” said Kerwin Spencer, Sumner County attorney.
The jury deliberated for about three hours before coming back with its verdict. Provencio, dressed in a long sleeved striped tri-colored polo shirt, was ushered back to Sumner County jail where he has been held in custody for an unrelated felony rape charge filed in January. That trial has been set for June 21.
Judge Scott McQuin thanked the jury for their service stating that this trial “took much longer than your usual Sumner County trial.”
