Garion Davontae Hart and Lagarius Kamond Hart were indicted by a grand jury Feb. 6 on two counts of theft by receiving stolen property, one count of theft by taking, and one count of theft by deception.
Their father, Gary Latonia Hart, was also indicted.
The brothers were sentenced separately by Chief Superior Court Judge William Prior April 24, but their sentences were the same. Each was sentenced to 10 years probation for the offense of theft by taking. As part of a plea negotiation with the state, the other three counts were dismissed.
Assistant District Attorney Wright Barksdale prosecuted the case, and the Hart brothers were represented by public defender Alice Button.
The charges were the result of a crime that occurred Oct. 22, 2013, at a residence on Graham Road. According to a report of the incident by Jones County Deputy Robert Taylor, he was dispatched to the residence in reference to stolen property.
