A probation modification for a Macon man resulted in the loss of his first offender status, which means the felony for which he was originally charged will be a part of his permanent record.

When David Recardo Beasley pled guilty to criminal attempt to commit robbery by intimidation in Jones County Superior Court March 17, 2010, he was allowed to plea under the first offender act, which meant if he abided by the rules of his five years probation, at the end of the sentence the felony charge would be wiped from his record.

Beasley was in court again May 16 for a violation of that probation, namely a Bibb County arrest for DUI. That arrest and positive test for alcohol were both probation violations.

The defendant’s first offender status was removed. He was adjudicated guilty and resentenced to five years probation. He was given credit for time served and money paid since his original sentence.

Beasley will also serve 180 days in Jones County Law Enforcement Center suspended upon entry to a state detention center for 180 days. Upon successful completion, he will return to regular probation supervision as originally ordered.
