Swanwick Man Found Guilty of Blinding Nashville Man
A Swanwick man on trial for an attack that left a Nashville man effectively blinded was found guilty on all charges by a jury in Perry County last week.
Allen Fisher was convicted of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, a Class 3 Felony; aggravated battery inflicting torture, a Class 1 Felony; and intimidation inflicting physical harm, a Class 3 Felony.
Prosecutors say that Robert Pfister of Nashville was attacked by Fisher after turning down a dead end road in Perry County near Fisher’s home on April 7 of last year.
The jury deliberated for about an hour before finding Fisher guilty of all three charges.
Sentencing is set for April 24. Those convicted of a Class 1 Felony could be subject to up to 15 years imprisonment and fines up to $25,000. Additionally, Class 3 Felonies could result in up to five years in prison and fines up to $25,000.
Pfister lost his left eye in the attack and is unlikely to regain sight in his right eye.
