CLINTON — The State of Iowa filed a petition to revoke probation and deferred judgement for a Camanche man previously granted a deferred judgement on a felony theft charge.
Assistant Clinton County Attorney Ross Barlow in December filed a petition to revoke the probation and deferred judgement of Jeremiah A. Brown, 21. Barlow in the petition alleges Brown violated the terms and conditions of probation and deferred judgement based on the report of violation dated Dec. 13 and the order of disposition. Attorney Robert McGee was appointed to represent Brown. A revocation hearing is set for 10:45 a.m. March 1.
An order of disposition filed on Nov. 29 ordered Brown to serve 120 days in the Clinton County Jail, with 119 days suspended and credit for time served on one count of third-degree theft, an aggravated misdemeanor. Brown was fined $625. Brown was placed on unsupervised probation for one year.
Brown appeared May 4 in Clinton County District Court for sentencing for second-degree theft, a Class D felony. District Court Judge Henry Latham granted Brown a deferred judgement. Brown was placed on probation for two years to the Seventh Judicial District Department of Correctional Services unless sooner released by the court. Conditions of probation included Brown completing his GED, abstaining from the use of controlled substances, submitting to random drug testing and maintaining appropriate employment and other conditions set by the probation officer.
According to the affidavit, at 7:15 p.m. Aug. 1, an officer was dispatched to Wal-Mart for a theft complaint. An asset protection manager stated Brown, an employee, had been stealing from the store periodically from June 23, 2016, to Aug. 1, 2016. Brown admitted to managers he had stolen several items. The total of the items stolen was $1,717.69.
