An illegal hookup of power at a home on Sage Street resulted in a probation revocation and three additional years probation for a Jones County man last week.

Joseph Dwayne Clements entered a guilty plea in Jones County Superior Court Oct. 10 to the offense of theft of services. The new offense was a violation of his 2012 probation.

The balance of the defendant’s probation was revoked to the Jones County Law Enforcement Center. The end date of the sentence is Feb. 22, 2014. Clements was also sentenced to three years for theft of services. The sentence may be served on probation but is to run consecutively with the 2012 sentence. That means his probation will not begin for the new charge until the sentence for the 2012 offense has been served.

According to a Feb. 15, 2012, incident report by Jones County Deputy Kevin Smith, he responded to a call in reference to a boat that was taken from a home on Pecan Drive.
