Repeat encounters of a Jones County man with local law enforcement officers resulted in a 20-year sentence for his offenses albeit on probation.

Noah Grayson Dixon, 39, was in Jones County Superior Court Dec. 20 to resolve four cases, which began in April and ended with his arrest last month.

At the conclusion of his plea negotiations with the state’s attorney, he received two 12 months sentences for the offense of criminal trespass, 12 months for the misdemeanor offense of obstruction of an officer, and a 20-year sentence for the offense of aggravated battery. All sentences are to run concurrent for a total of 20 years and may be served on probation.

Assistant District Attorney Keagan Waystack told the court that the only reason the state did not ask for jail time is the victim does not want him in jail and does not even want a stay away order.

Waystack said Dixon’s offenses include kicking holes in door of the mother of his child and the aggravated battery charge was for breaking her arm. The obstruction charge was because he ran from law enforcement.
