A 32-year-old Mount Holly, N.C. man, Ronnie Carson Beadles, was sentenced last week in Halifax County Circuit Court to 20 years in prison, with all but nine months suspended for breaking and entering Johnson’s Quick Shop.
The court ordered Beadles to serve his time at Victory Home, an alternative sentencing program located in Portsmouth.
The court also sentenced Beadles to a 12-month suspended jail term for petty larceny and a 10-day suspended jail term for failing to appear in court.
The court ordered the suspended portions of Beadles’ sentence be conditioned on his good behavior for 10 years and ordered him placed on probation for one year.
In addition, the court ordered Beadles to pay $500 restitution both jointly and severally with a co-defendant in the case, and it ordered him to have no contact with Johnson’s Quick Shop.
