A Haddock man who pointed a pistol at a Jones County deputy was sentenced to 20 years with three years to serve in prison following a guilty plea in Superior Court.

Denarian Jovon White was sentenced May 22 but was allowed to turn himself in to begin to serve his sentence at 4 p.m., June 6, as part of his plea negotiation with the state.

The defendant received 15 years for the charge of aggravated assault on a peace officer, five years for possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, four years for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and 12 months each for carrying a firearm without a license, obstruction of an officer, and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer.

The possession with intent and aggravated assault charges are to run consecutive with each other and concurrent with all the other charges for a total sentence of 20 years. After the service of three years in confinement, the remainder of his sentence is to be served on probation.
