Trojan mug
Ryan Freeland Trojan
A 21-year-old Lugoff man who admits he attacked a Camden man with a baseball bat last July will spend 11 years behind bars after pleading guilty to a charge of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. Ryan Freeland Trojan was originally charged with attempted murder in the attack, but accepted a deal to plead guilty to the lesser charge. Circuit Court Judge DeAndrea Benjamin imposed the sentence Wednesday after hearing the details of the case from 5th Judicial District Assistant Solicitor Brett Perry and Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Justin Dill.
