The defendant in a shooting death a dozen years ago was sent back to prison on November 29 for violating probation on his original sentence for manslaughter and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Victor Stanley Pease, 58, admitted in circuit court that he did not comply with the probation order in three areas: he failed to submit a monthly written report to his probation officer in July and August; he failed to pay a $20 monthly supervision cost and he changed residence from Jacksonville without notification.
Mr. Pease was arrested by the Columbia County sheriff’s department in Fort White on November 12.
Judge Phyllis Rosier ordered him to serve four years in prison, and he gets credit for 932 days he was in the state system before his release in October, 2003.
Mr. Pease, who then had a Jacksonville address, was convicted of killing his step-son Anthony Waters, 20, of Jacksonville during an argument at a residence southeast of Taylor the afternoon of May 13, 1999. Prior to that incident, he had a criminal past that included aggravated assault, drunk driving and battery.
In other sentencings that day, Colvin Cox pleaded no contest to sale and possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and drew a 364-day county jail term. He gets credit for 154 days already in custody.
• Sierra Church entered a similar plea to reduced charges of sale and possession of cocaine and already has served 103 days of a six-month jail sentence. Following release, the defendant will be on house arrest six months, followed by a year on probation.
• Franklin Bentley pleaded no contest to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and will be on probation one year.
• Judge Rosier ordered Kayla Blackburn onto a house arrest after she admitted to violating probation for possession of drug paraphernalia. She must also do 25 hours of community service and attend driving school.
In sentencings from the November 22 docket, Germaine Haynes pleaded no contest to criminal solicitation and will be in county jail six months less 66 days already served. He will be on probation two years following release.
• Gregory Beck drew a three-year probation term after pleading to sale and possession of controlled drugs with intent to sell. The judge ordered him to pay a $350 investigative cost.
