ATLANTA (AP) - Fulton County prosecutors say an ex-DeKalb County sheriff’s deputy has been convicted in a brutality case.

District Attorney’s officials say 36-yer-old Dameco Moses pleaded guilty Tuesday to battery for injuring a suspect in June 2012.

Prosecutors say Moses was tracking a fugitive who led officers on a high speed chase along Interstate 20 into Fulton County. Authorities say the man crashed head-on into a tractor trailer, then fled on foot into the woods.

Prosecutors say Moses was in the back of an unmarked police car with the handcuffed and restrained suspect after his arrest when he punched the man in the face several times. Another deputy intervened and reported the assault.

Moses has also been ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and is barred from working in law enforcement again.
