After pleading guilty to multiple charges, Joshua Humphrey will not only spend time behind bars, he will be on probation.
The sentence for two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated burglary, theft over $1,000 and illegal possession of big game was handed down last week in criminal court.
Following six months behind bars, Humphrey will be on probation for eight years also being provided with the judicial diversion option, his plea agreement said. He will also pay court costs and nearly $7,000 in restitution.
The plea agreement resolved numerous outstanding cases the 18- year- old had, all of which were acquired in two months.
Beginning on November 1, 2008, he was charged with theft over $1,000 and burglary after officers with the sheriff’s department linked him to a Stiner Lane home invasion, the court record said. A month later, sheriff’s deputies connected him to another break in on Comer Lane. During this incident, Humphrey was alleged to have taken numerous items including a digital camera and computer.
Adding to his charges, Humphrey was also accused of taking part in a violent crime.
Police reports indicate he used his vehicle to block the road while his passenger exited it firing shots at another car.
Rounding out his offenses, Humphrey was charged with a game violation.
Agents with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency found him to have dead deer in possession, as his vehicle was parked at his home. After admitting he had killed the animal, he was unable to produce a hunting license, the court record said.
