BECKLEY (WVVA) - A former Raleigh County sheriff's deputy pleaded guilty Thursday to a charge of domestic battery.

Randy Burgess had resigned his position with the Raleigh County Sheriff's Department in July. He had been suspended since being charged with felony child battery in January.

Burgess entered the plea in Raleigh County Circuit Court Thursday morning. Additional charges Burgess faces from more recent indictments were continued until January 2014.

WVVA's Caroline Bach was in court for the plea hearing. She will have more this evening on WVVA News at 5 and 6.
