A Quinton man incarcerated at a correctional facility entered a guilty plea to felony violation of a protective order.

Kyle Robert Crews, 24, formerly of the 1200 block of Quaker Road and currently residing at the Lunenburg Correctional Center, entered the plea during proceedings Monday in New Kent Circuit Court.

In a summary of evidence, on Sept. 29, 2019, Crews made contact with a person that he was ordered not to have any interaction, direct or indirect, with. The defendant had two previous violations, and this offense, which is his third, triggered the felony due to it being his third within 20 years.

Crews was sentenced to a five-year jail sentence with four years, six months suspended (six months to serve).

In other circuit court proceedings:

–Steven Dashawn Boyd, 39, formerly of the 500 block of North Adams Street received formal sentencing on one count of possession of a controlled substance and an amended charge of misdemeanor possession of marijuana (originally felony distribution of marijuana). During a July 22, 2019 trial, the defendant entered a guilty plea after he admitted to having the substances during a Mar. 8, 2019 traffic stop. During his trial, he was ordered into the First Offender Program.

Boyd received a five-year sentence with all time suspended on the possession of a controlled substance conviction. All 30 days on the misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge were suspended.

–Quentin Andre Huggins, 32, of the 8100 block of Kitchener Road, received formal sentencing on an amended charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor (originally felony child abuse), assault and battery on a law enforcement officer, and misdemeanor DUI (second offense).

During an Feb. 24 trial, Huggins admitted that on June 14, 2019 he was driving a vehicle erratically on Route 33 (Eltham Road). A traffic stop was conducted by officers and Huggins was determined to be driving under the influence. Inside of the vehicle was a young child he was transporting at the time. As he was taken out the car for processing, he swung his shoulder quickly hitting the car door and forcing it to close on the police officer who was taking him out of the vehicle, triggering the assault charge.

Huggins received a five-year jail sentence with four years, three months suspended (nine months to serve) on the assault on a law enforcement officer conviction. He received a 12-month sentence with all but 15 days suspended on the DUI (second offense) conviction, with the time being served required by state law. All 12 months on the contributing to the delinquency of a minor were suspended, but he must pay a fine of $2,000.
