Defendants make individual pleas in CC Circuit Court
A variety of pleas were entered by four different men during proceedings in Charles City Circuit Court last Friday:
–Anthony Durand Brown, 26, of 11943 Mapisco Road, Charles City, entered a plea of no contest to one count of possession of cocaine. During a traffic stop, Brown threw a plastic bag from his car window during a routine traffic stop on May 10. When the bag was recovered by a Charles City deputy, it contained small amounts of cocaine. Brown was placed in the first offender program that requires him to complete 100 hours of community service. Upon completion and good behavior, the charge may be dismissed.
–Christopher O’Neil Carter, 38, of 7401 Adkins Road, Charles City, accepted a plea agreement and entered an Alford plea of guilty to a reduced charge of misdemeanor domestic assault and battery and also misdemeanor destruction of property. In a summary of evidence, on April 19, Carter struck his girlfriend Monchele Brown after a party during a ride home, with Brown sustaining injuries. The destruction of property stems from Carter damaging a door belonging to Brown’s mother on July 25, 2012. Under the agreement, Carter received one year in jail on the assault and battery to serve and one year suspended time on the destruction of property.
–Joseph Tyler Russell, 21, 12701 Sterling Heights Lane, Providence Forge, accepted a plea deal and admitted guilt to one count of grand larceny. Russell admitted he stole and sold a rifle part that belonged to his neighbor after a delivery man left it in his possession. Under the agreement, Russell received a 10-year jail sentence with all but three months suspended.
–Todd Alfonzo Tabb, 50, of 8900 Old Elam Cemetery Road, Charles City, entered a straight guilty plea to one count of grand larceny. Tabb admitted he stole scrap metal from the property of Douglas Roach and sold it for cash. Tabb will be formally sentenced on Nov. 12.
