A Jones County man on parole for felony convictions of possession and conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine received 25 years probation for another possession charge last week.

Robert Lee Graham pled guilty Feb. 26 in Jones County Superior Court to his most recent offense of possession of meth and received 25 years with the first 180 days in Jones County LEC suspended upon entry into state residential substance abuse treatment center. His sentence is to run concurrent with all existing sentences.

Assistant District Attorney Gregory Bushway said Graham was arrested June 27, 2012, while investigators were working a drug case on another individual who happened to be living with Graham.

“He was not cooperative, and meth was found at the house,” Bushway said.

Graham was in court Feb. 7 on a habeas motion asking for a retrial of his 2009 case. That conviction resulted in a 30-year sentence and is the reason he is on parole. The prosecutor said, following last week’s plea, the habeas case was dismissed with prejudice and cannot be refiled.
