HART — An 18-year-old Walkerville man was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Feb. 1, to serve six months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for a conviction of breaking and entering with intent to commit larceny.

Morgan James Pearson, of 160 E. East St., testified last December that he and two co-defendants broke into a garage last August in the Village of Walkerville by entering through a window. They took a couple of tires and an extension cord, he said.

In exchange for his guilty plea, a second count of breaking and entering was dismissed and his habitual offender notice was withdrawn. Pearson received credit for 116 days served in jail.
