A Charles City man will spend a month in jail after receiving formal sentencing Tuesday morning in Charles City Circuit Court.

Brandon Deandre Bowman, 28, of the 13000 block of The Glebe Lane, was sentenced to five years with four years, 11 months suspended on a single charge of selling stolen property.

On May 1, 2017, boat engines were stolen from Christian Hagen, along with an ATV belonging to Eddie Richardson. An investigation revealed that Bowman and Dallis Wallace Jr. had tried to sell the motors to a local businessman. Bowman sold one of the engines and the ATV to a relative for $800. Bowman admitted guilt to the crime during a Dec. 15, 2017 trial.

Along with spending a month in jail, Bowman must also pay $3,500 in restitution, the total amount for the engine and ATV that he sold.
In an unrelated case, a Clover man will spend no time in jail but will be place on probation during for 20 years after receiving formal sentencing during the afternoon session.

Terry Tyrell Barnes Jr., 23, received 10 years in prison with all time suspended on one charge each of burglary and grand larceny.

On Aug. 28, 2017, Barnes ransacked the home of Welton Smith Jr., stealing $9,000 worth of shoes, clothes, and jewelry and sold them to a store in Richmond. Using surveillance film and information used to make the sale, authorities tracked down Barnes and a co-defendant, Randy Travon McQuinn Jr., and arrested the two men.

The defendant entered into a plea agreement on May 11, having the charge of intent to sell stolen property dropped.
