A convicted burglar originally sentenced to five years probation had his sentence tripled after fleeing the state and committing another burglary in Virginia.

Charles Hagy was adjudicated guilty in Jones County Superior Court Oct. 11 and resentenced to 15 years for the offense of burglary with five years to serve. Superior Court Judge Hulane George ordered the new sentence shall be above and beyond any time already served on probation.

Assistant District Attorney Gregory Bushway told the court Hagy pled guilty to the charge of burglary Dec. 2, 2005, and was sentenced to five years probation. He was allowed to plea to the charge as a first offender, which means, if he completed his sentence as ordered, he would not have a felony record.

Hagy’s original arrest was April 6, 2005, with two co-defendants for a burglary that took place on Highway 57. On that date the three offenders were spotted loading up a trailer with items from a residence, and when deputies caught up with them, they were made to take the items back.

Bushway told the court Hagy’s sentence had been tolled to Dec. 19, 2012, because when he was allowed to enter a private drug treatment facility in 2007, he absconded the state.
