DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

An inmate already in the DeKalb County Jail just got 19 years added to his sentence for trying to have the county prosecutor injured.

45-year old Joshua Kilgro was convicted of trying to arrange the assault to keep DeKalb County Deputy District Attorney Scott Lloyd from attending his 2014 sentencing hearing. Prosecutors say he tried to solicit someone to run Lloyd's vehicle off a mountain.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said the person Kilgro solicited reported it to law enforcement.

Marshall said Kilgro pleaded guilty in DeKalb County Circuit Court to criminal solicitation to commit first-degree assault, a class C felony.

Kilgro was additionally sentenced to 12 months for third-degree assault, a class A misdemeanor, regarding a fight while he was incarcerated.

These new sentences will run concurrently with previous sentences for crimes including unlawful possession of controlled substances, DUI, and third-degree burglary.

“This defendant’s attempt to thwart justice was properly met by the righteous arm of the law, resulting in even more convictions and a stern sentence,” Marshall said in a news release.
