Albert Webb, 45, of Edwight, two
years at Atlanta for selling liquor. He
protested that he sold liquor only to
"the good people who knew how to
take a drink" and asked for probation.
He refused to name the "good people."

Also I found the following to help you get an idea of what he did

What is Malicious Wounding?

Malicious wounding as defined by the VA criminal code is the act of shooting, stabbing, cutting, wounding, or causing bodily injury with the intention to maim, injure, disfigure, disable, or kill.

If you cause serious bodily injury without intent, the charge is unlawful wounding.

A charge of aggravated malicious wounding is when the victim is severely injured, and caused permanent physical damage or disfigurement.
