PORT ALLEN- Two former West Baton Rouge deputies are expected to plead guilty to their role in a 2007 jailhouse beating that left an inmate with a broken jaw.

Authorities say Gary Frith and Philmore Bradford will plead guilty to second degree battery and malfeasance in office.

Deputies say Frith and Bradford stood by and watched as Casey Batts beat Stacey Lee Paul in December 2007 in the parish detention center's shower area.

Batts was sentenced to three years in prison, with all but seven months suspended. Batts will serve 30 days behind bars before spending the remaining six months under house arrest.
