Three receive 20 years prison during UCCC hearings

Three defendants received a combined 20 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction after each was found to have violated the terms of their probations during hearings in front of Judge Hamilton Singleton in Union County Circuit Court.

Jeremiah Green and David Edwards Jr. were discovered together in November 2011 with a third man. Officers reportedly discovered marijuana and other controlled substances, firearms and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.

Both were found during hearings to have violates their probations and sentenced to five years a piece in prison.

Sankeno Gray, who spent time in and out of jail in 2010 and 2011, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for violating the terms of his probation.

Singleton told him, “Probation is clearly not going to work for you. You’re not going to let it.”

    You go Judge Singleton! Lets start showing these folks we are TIRED of the games they continue to play and the mockery they make of the judicial system in regards to parole and probation. Drugs are destroying our towns and communities while we sit and idly watch. We know it is there, we know people using/abusing, we hear of law enforcements never ending/winning war on drugs- yet when these people are caught over and over again. Of course, they do the “drug court” or “smarter sentencing” programs, and although some take advantage and actually get rehabilitated, others just give lip service saying what ever the judge wants to hear to keep their sorry butt out of jail. Singleton has proved time and time again he is getting tired of the lip service, and frankly, so am I.
