      Bennett pleads in assault case involving jail employees

      Anthony Bennett pleaded no contest Wednesday to assaulting a jail or prison employee and assaulting, resisting or obstructing police.

      A man charged with killing a 4-year-old boy on an Indian reservation has entered a plea in an assault case involving Bay County jail employees.

      Anthony Bennett pleaded no contest Wednesday to assaulting a jail or prison employee and assaulting, resisting or obstructing police.

      A no-contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing purposes.

      The 21-year-old Bennett was sentenced in Bay County Circuit Court to concurrent terms of two years, eight months to four years and three years to 10 years in prison.

      Defense lawyer Doris Day-Winters says he's "sorry for what he did."

      Bennett faces trial next year in federal court in the death of Carnel Chamberlain, whose remains were found under a home on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Reservation near Mount Pleasant.
