Man, woman sentenced to prison in connection with Baxley Quick Chick attack


Two people accused in a brutal attack on a woman and her daughter at a Baxley fast food restaurant have been sentenced to prison time.

Nathaniel Eric Smith, 45, and Latasha Denise Smith, 28, were sentenced Friday for Aggravated Battery and Cruelty to Children in Camden County Superior Court, according to District Attorney Jackie Johnson in a statement.

The charges stem from the June 2017 assault of a Baxley woman and her 15-year-old daughter at the Quick Chick.

The Smiths were customers of the establishment and attacked the owner and her daughter after complaining about cold chicken.

Superior Court Judge Robert Guy presided over the case and sentenced Nathaniel Eric Smith to serve eight years in prison followed by seven years on probation for Cruelty to Children, the statement said.

Latasha Denise Smith was sentenced to serve two years in prison followed by eight years on probation for Aggravated Battery, according to the statement.

Both defendants were ordered to pay $4,000 in restitution and banished from Appling and Jeff Davis counties.

The victims were present at the sentencing and made statements to the court.
