Teen Sentenced For Lindale Beating

Jeremiah Handsford Smith of Van was one of at least 30 others involved in the June 2005 fight, that apparently started after an argument over a girl. The victim, Aaron Bernard, had several broken bones in his face and some of his teeth knocked out. Smith was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was sentenced to five years probation.
