Probation violation nets four-year prison term for Herndon man
A circuit court judge on Friday sent a Herndon man to prison for four years after he violated probation after only two months.
Lee Montez Thompson, 21, was on probation for two grand larceny convictions stemming from incidents in late June and early July 2012.
Thompson pleaded guilty in January and was sentenced Feb. 8 to a total of four years in the Virginia Department of Corrections with all but six months of time served suspended, conditioned upon good behavior, payment of $400 restitution and a two- year period of supervised probation.
Less than two months after being placed on supervised probation, Thompson didn't report to his probation officer that he was arrested in Montgomery County, Md. and Fairfax County.
Thompson was subsequently convicted in Maryland for carrying a handgun and was sentenced to 40 days in prison. He has preliminary hearings scheduled in Fairfax County General District Court on Sept. 24 for possession with intent to distribute marijuana and manufacturing a controlled substance.
In the Loudoun County incidents, Thompson stole an iPhone and a bicycle from a man on the W&OD Trail.
Thompson’s prior criminal history includes convictions in Loudoun County for falsely identifying himself to law enforcement and underage possession of alcohol.
