(BATAVIA, OH) -- A man found guilty of slicing two Clermont County Sheriff's Deputies in the face recieved the maximum sentence.

Larry Armacost will spend the next 23 years behind bars.

The sentence was handed down by Judge Robert Ringwald, who said he gave Armacost the maximum sentence based on Armacost's previous record and reports that he would commit a crime again.

Deputies John Feldkamp and Adam Bailey were injured in August when they responded to a disorder complaint on Lindale Road.

While they were attempting to place Armacost into custody, a struggle ensued resulting in both deputies being cut with a knife in the facial area.  Armacost told the Deputies he ran because he thought he may have had outstanding warrants. 

Deputy Feldkamp received a large cut to his forehead and a smaller cut to the bottom part of his left eye.  Deputy Bailey received a cut just under his left eyebrow, a scratch to the right side of his cheek, a scratch to the left side of his neck, and a scratch under his chin.  Both deputies received medical treatment at Clermont Mercy Hospital and were released.

Armacost was found guilty of four counts of felonious assault and two counts of resisting arrest.
