A 37-year-old South Boston man, Lamont Bee Miller, was sentenced Friday in Halifax County Circuit Court to six years in prison for breaking and entering.
Judge Leslie M. Osborn sentenced Miller to 20 years in prison for breaking and entering, with all but six years suspended, a 10-year suspended prison term for grand larceny, and to five-year suspended prison terms for receiving or selling stolen property and possession of a firearm or ammunition as a convicted felon.
Osborne ordered the suspended portion of Miller’s sentence be conditioned on the defendant’s good behavior for 40 years, beginning immediately, and he ordered Miller to be placed on probation for one year following his release.
Osborne ordered Miller to submit to a drug and alcohol assessment, ordered him to pay court costs in full within eight years and ordered him to have no contact with Jerry Lovelace or Lovelace’s property.
