Robert Rumney was in Jones County Superior Court Sept. 5 facing new charges of family violence battery and three counts of cruelty to children. He was sentenced to five years to serve for the new offenses. That sentence will run at the same time as the five years of his probation that was revoked.
The end date of his probation is July 25, 2022. Following the service of his five years in the Department of Corrections, Rumney will return to regular probation supervision as originally ordered.
Assistant District Attorney Gregory Bushway told the court that Rumney pled guilty to aggravated assault Jan. 26, 2012, and was sentenced to 10 years. He said the defendant committed the new offense of family violence battery Aug. 7.
Rumney stipulated to the probation violations and pled guilty to the new offense.
