PORT ALLEN, LA (WAFB) -

A former sheriff's deputy who was convicted on charges after he and two other deputies brutally beat an inmate headed back to court Thursday, but he didn't get the news he was hoping for.

Casey Batts went before Judge James Best at the West Baton Rouge Parish Courthouse to ask for a new trial.

Batts was a supervisor at the West Baton Rouge Parish Detention Center in 2007 when Stacey Paul was beaten so badly his jaw had to be wired shut.

Batts was found guilty of battery and malfeasance in office. He was sentenced in June 2011 to three years in prison, but has not served his time.

WBRSO reports it has paid more than a half-million dollars to cover the victim's medical bills, pain and suffering, etc.

The judge denied Batt's request for a new trial and instead gave him 48 hours to get an ankle bracelet. He will serve six months under house arrest and then 30 days of jail time. His attorney intends to appeal.
