Topeka man sentenced for attacking teen

Eddie Smith Jr.

A Topeka man was sentenced to almost two years in prison for attacking a Burlington teenager.

Last week, 40-year-old Eddie Lee Smith Jr. was sentenced to 21 months.

Smith was arrested in early October after a domestic violence incident in Burlington.

The Coffee County Attorney says Smith was threatening his girlfriend when her teenage son intervened, defending himself and his mother.
