A man arrested twice in a one-month period — once for marijuana, once for allegedly planning a robbery — entered a plea in court last week and will be sentenced in January.

I don't get it? If they took a plea deal. What is there to sentence in January? Do they go to jail or not?

Another victim of the war on drugs ....right

Hope all you people confused on who and what was responsible for Sundays Coast Guard tragedy are reading this and will stop bashing people who decide to follow this countries laws and reconsider how victimless marijuana really is.

The article is pretty clear 100, they took a plea deal to receive felony probation instead of jail time.
Probation is a sentence and as such there must be a sentencing hearing.

Oh please. For every bank robbery planning idiot there is running a marijuana operation, there are 99 of YOUR neighbors doing the same thing. Your peaceful, law-abiding, friendly neighbors. 112 has it right.

If they had just left him alone to keep smoking weed, he wouldn't be out robbing people.

I did not see anything about a bank robbery in that article@8p I guess your wrong.

yeah it wasn't a bank robbery plan..see what's really wrong is people failed reading comprehension in grade school! Terrible. They will be sentenced to see what their time will be..they will get credit for time served in the County Jail and then the rest will be the time the serve on felony probabtion.

 

 COMMENT 351312 agree helpful negative off topic

Wow, 296, apparently you failed reading comprehension as well as a few other posters in this thread. From the article, "The maximum amount of time behind bars for Hill and Moore is three years, according to prosecutor Mary Barron, and three years, eight months for Stanley. Under the plea agreement, they will get felony probation and time served" So you are partially right, but they will get credit for time served, which since he was "first arrested in July" (also from the article) will only be a few months. The rest of the time will be behind bars, and then he will ALSO serve felony probation time.

All of this time will be hammered out during sentencing.

And no, it wasn't a bank robbery planned. Stanley and his mug friends were going to rob a HOUSE! Yikes.

They will get sentenced for a whole amount of time..so say three years (for example). They could get credit for time served in County Jail (at time and a half so instead of 1:1 they will likely get 1.5 days credit or more for each day they served) and then have a suspended sentence on felony probation (which will likely be lowered in a year or so if they behave and follow their probation requirements). That's how it usually works. If for some reason the sentence isn't suspended they will likely do 3/4 time or at most 80% of their sentence in County Jail (per the new state law) and then be released to continue parole for the remaining of their term.

349 - read the article, they will be sentenced to felony probation and time served. That was their plea deal. Plead guilty-don't spend anymore time in jail.
