MILTON — A Santa Rosa County jury found four men guilty Thursday of battery charges stemming from an attack on correctional officers earlier this year.

Dukene Myrtil, Andre Williams, Markus Vincent and Johnslow Sauveur attacked officers at the Santa Rosa Correctional Institution on Jan. 1, according to a news release from the State Attorney’s Office.

Myrtil was found guilty of two counts of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, battery on a law enforcement officer, depriving an officer of means of communication and assault on a law enforcement officer.

Williams was found guilty of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer and four counts of battery on a law enforcement officer.

Vincent was found guilty of two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer.

Sauveur was found guilty of battery on a law enforcement officer.

All the men were close management inmates at the Santa Rosa Correctional Institution when the incident occurred, the release said. The defendants attacked three correctional officers, causing numerous injuries, including a fractured orbital wall, fractured shoulder, fractured thumb, lacerations and bruises.

During the attack, Myrtil took a hand-held radio from one of the officers and used it to strike the officers. Williams also spit in the faces of three additional correctional officers during the incident, according to the release.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 27 before Circuit Judge John Simon.

Myrtil faces a maximum sentence of 140 years in prison. His criminal history includes convictions for robbery, carjacking, burglary with a battery, fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer, and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Williams faces a maximum sentence of 100 years. His criminal history includes convictions for second-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, sexual battery, aggravated battery, kidnapping, home invasion robbery, burglary and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Vincent faces a maximum sentence of 20 years. His criminal history includes convictions for second-degree murder and attempted robbery.

Sauveur faces a maximum sentence of 10 years. He has been convicted previously for aggravated assault, carjacking and attempted robbery.

The investigation and arrests were conducted by the Office of Inspector General. Amber Rowland prosecuted the case for the state.
