Currie man sentenced to a year for stolen property, will be out in 3 months

SLAYTON – A Currie man charged with six felonies in Murray County District Court was recently sentenced to a year in county jail after pleading guilty to a count of receiving stolen property. Counts against Brian John Hames, 41, of first-degree burglary, controlled substance possession and possession of burglary tools were dropped as part of a plea agreement.

According to court documents, Hames, who has previous convictions of driving while impaired and controlled substance possession, was seen by witnesses driving a vehicle related to several burglaries at a rural residence. Another vehicle used in connection to the burglaries was found on remote land that leads to land owned by Hames’ parents. Both vehicles had been seen packed full of household items. A search warrant executed at Hames’ residence turned up items with a value that totaled more than $5,000.

Hames was given credit for 140 days of time served since his arrest in the burglaries. With a one-year sentence and his time served, this means he will complete his jail term by the end of October, according to the Lyon County Jail website. Hames currently owed more than $15,000 in fees, fines and restitution.

Another man allegedly involved in the burglaries is scheduled to go to trial August 28, unless, of course, an advantageous plea agreement comes along.
