Subsequently, the attorney threw out the charge of burglary of a motor vehicle, a level 9 felony; non-residential burglary, a level 7 felony; and theft, a Class A misdemeanor.O’Neal was convicted for a Sept. 12, 2012 theft which he entered a neighbor’s dwelling on North Conway Springs Road and stole guns, jewelry, a video camera, cash, a saxophone and an iPod. He spent 10 days in state prison before being released on probation. During his probationary period, O’Neal then pled guilty to creating a scheme in which he set two fires inside his home on 822 Chicaskia Road, southeast of Conway Springs when his father, Donald O’Neal was sleeping at the residence upstairs on June 12, 2013. He was then accused of setting three fires to two outbuildings at the residence.O’Neal was then accused of breaking into the neighbor son’s 1995 Chevrolet pickup and stealing a hammer from the cab, and also entering a shed and stealing a gas can and two cans of paint before the incident. He then allegedly set these items up in an attempt to make it look like the neighbor was the person starting the fires.On October 8, 2013, Sumner County District Judge Scott McQuin sent O’Neal to prison for probation violation. He also set up a trial date for the four felony charges. The O’Neal jury trial was set for this February before the plea bargain was made.Spencer said O’Neal is currently serving out a sentence for a probation which will end by November. He will then begin his sentence for the arson convictions. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

I’m with Good keep it up judges and Spencer Report Reply 0 replies · active 339 weeks ago -1 Vote up Vote down anonymous · 339 weeks ago Hey Cueball, since you locked the other story, I’ll ask you here. What’s Kerwin going to do, charge half the city of wellington with adultery from here out? There’s plenty of that here in Wellington, as you know, and by some pretty well-known, highly regarded individuals. Doesn’t seem like a good venue to impose your way of thinking with an archaic law. Just saying… Maybe he just felt he “had to charge somebody with something because there was a shooting…” in which case, perhaps its understood. Maybe you can write a column about – you know – is it Kerwin’s intention to legislate people’s private behavior…?
