Mitchell man gets two years probation for violation

A Mitchell man will be on probation for two years for violating his probation.

Jacob Fredericks, 24, was sentenced to two years in prison in August 2012 for violating probation on a felony drug charge, but Judge Rodney Steele suspended execution of that sentence, placing him back on probation. He recently violated that probation by possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, refusing to submit to a urinalysis, and failing to make payments and keep contact with court services.

Judge Tim Bjorkman continued the order for a suspended execution of sentence for two years, with 120 days credit for time served.
