Adam Jasper Denny was indicted in Jones County Feb. 6 on eight counts, including burglary in first degree, burglary in second degree, entering an automobile, felony fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, obstruction of officer, criminal trespass, and speeding.
The defendant was in Jones County Superior Court July 17 and pled guilty to four of the charges, and, as part of the plea negotiations, four charges were dismissed. The charges were actually from incidents that took place Aug. 9, 2012, that appeared to have started with an attempted traffic stop.
The delay of the resolution of the case was due in part to charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in Putnam County that was picked up by the federal court.
Information from the Middle District of Georgia U.S. Attorney’s office states that Denny was indicted Nov. 15, 2012, for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and he pled guilty to the charge May 31, 2013. He was sentenced Sept. 24, 2013, to serve 96 months in federal prison consecutive to a state revocation sentence he was serving at that time.
