Man Sentenced to Prison for Charleston Beating

A man will spend time in prison for a beating that happened in downtown Charleston. Dana Lafond was in court Wednesday to be sentenced. Lafond pleaded guilty last year to unlawful wounding. Police say Dana Lafond and Brandon Douglas beat and robbed Brandon Coltey in the KRT Transit Mall in March 2013. Douglas has also entered a guilty plea. During Wednesday's hearing, Lafond was sentenced to one to five years in prison, with credit for the 10 months he's already served. For more Kanawha Valley news, go to
