CLINTON — A Camanche man who committed a theft at Wal-Mart had his deferred judgement revoked after stipulating to violating the terms of probation.
Jeremiah A. Brown, 22, appeared Thursday in Clinton County District Court for a probation revocation hearing. Assistant Clinton County Attorney Ross Barlow on Dec. 21 filed a petition to revoke Brown’s probation and deferred judgement. Barlow in the petition alleged Brown violated the terms and conditions of probation and deferred judgement based on the report of violation and order of disposition in an aggravated misdemeanor case.
District Court Judge Mark Lawson ordered Brown’s deferred judgement previously granted for felony theft be revoked. Brown was sentenced upon his guilty plea.
Lawson had ordered a sentence of incarceration not to exceed five years be suspended. Brown was placed on probation pending good behavior for a period of two years to the Seventh Judicial District Department of Correctional Services unless sooner released by the court upon recommendation by the probation officer. Brown was fined $750.
Brown on Nov. 29 appeared for sentencing for third-degree theft, an aggravated misdemeanor. District Associate Judge Phillip Tabor ordered Brown to serve 120 days in the Clinton County Jail, with 119 days suspended and credit for one day served. Brown was fined $625. He was placed on probation for one year.
Brown appeared May 4 in Clinton County District Court for sentencing on one count of second-degree theft, a Class D felony. District Court Judge Henry Latham ordered sentence and judgement be deferred. Brown was placed on probation for two years to the Seventh Judicial District Department of Corrections unless sooner released by the court upon the recommendation of the probation officer. Specific terms of probation included Brown completing his GED, abstaining from the use of controlled substances, submitting to random drug testing, maintaining appropriate employment and any other conditions set by the probation officer.
