Prior to his latest round of charges, Halsted’s last criminal actions occurred nearly a decade ago, Latham noted before suspending a five-year prison sentence.
Although he considered incarceration, Latham instead ordered Halsted to three years of court supervision and time in a residential corrections facility where he will undergo mental health and drug evaluations and treatment.
“I think this is going to be the last chance for you. If you don’t make it work, you’re probably going to end up back in this courtroom in front of myself or another judge and probably go to prison for a probation vioaltion,” Latham told Halsted. “This type of behavior cannot continue. You’re old enough to know better.”
In addition, Halsted was ordered to pay $1,368 in restitution to the Clinton Liquor and Convenience store.
