State Attorney Bill Eddins announced recently that Timothy John Lambeth, Jr. of Milton was convicted by a Santa Rosa County jury on Wednesday of Aggravated Battery. Following the conviction, Judge David Rimmer sentenced Lambeth to 10 years state prison. The 22-year-old Lambeth was arrested on July 21, 2012 after an investigation by the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office revealed that Lambeth and co-defendant, Kyle Carroll, attacked and beat Phillip Turner as Turner was walking along Carroll Road on the night of June 7, 2012. Lambeth and Carroll repeatedly punched Turner causing serious injuries including a fractured orbital bone and lacerations to his face. Turner was taken to Santa Rosa Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries. Lambeth claimed that he was not at the location where the beating occurred; however, witnesses put him and Carroll at the scene and saw them attack the victim. Kyle Carroll is scheduled for trial the week of July 29, 2013. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorneys Jason English and Joshua Loren.
