An inmate who was already in the Dekalb County jail received additional years to his sentence.

Joshua Kilgro, 45, had 19 years added to his sentence after attempting to arrange the assault of a prosecutor.

Authorities say Kilgro tried to solicit someone to cause a prosecutor to run his vehicle off a mountain road in order to injure him and keep him from attending a sentencing hearing.

Kilgro pleaded guilty in Dekalb County Circuit Court yesterday to criminal solicitation to commit first-degree assault.

He was also sentenced to 12 months for third-degree assault regarding a fight he was in while in jail.
