Grand theft is alleged on July 26, 2011, at a residence on Texas Road and on August 3, 2011, at a residence on Bailey Run Road. Both are third degree felonies.
Grand theft of a motor vehicle is charged in the theft of a automobile from Rocksprings Road on July 24, 2011, and is a felony of the fourth degree. Grand Theft of a firearm is charged in the theft of a firearm from a Beech Grove Road residence on July 23, 2011, and is classified as a felony of the third degree.

Two of the charges were probation violations stemming from cases in 2010 and 2011. The original charges in those cases were one count of receiving stolen property and one count of burglary.
According to court documents, the state will argue for a sentence of nine years, 11 months during sentencing, with the defense will be arguing for an eight year sentence. Restitution could also be imposed at sentencing.
