Five dealt go-to-jail cards

Leonardtown, MD -- St. Mary’s County Circuit Court Judge Michael Stamm sets aside one day a month to deal with alleged violations of probation. Judge Stamm is usually strict in imposing jail time for the portion of the original sentence that was unsuspended if the defendant admits or is found guilty of violating probation. The following defendants were sentenced to jail on Feb. 9 for probation violations:


Joshua Stone

Joshua Stone, 32, of Mechanicsville was sentenced to one year, five months and 26 days for violating probation on the original conviction of drug possession. Stone has two pending cases against him and also failed to appear in court although it turns out he was in a Salvation Army treatment program at the time that a bench warrant was issued for him. He was given credit for 60 days served since his arrest.





Crystal Quade

Crystal Quade, 24, of La Plata was sentenced to 18 months in jail after testing positive for opiates and being charged with CDS possession in Prince George’s County. Quade, through her attorney Robert Castro of Waldorf, asked for another chance to shake her addictions. “She just wants help,” he said.  But Judge Stamm told Quade: “You have had so many opportunities in the community – now you are asking for one more chance.” Quade was originally convicted of theft under $1,000 and the judge noted she got a break there because she had 14 other charges against her. She was given credit for the 66 days she has served in Charles County since her arrest but will serve her back-up time in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center.



William Parks, Jr.

William Parks, Jr., 23, of Great Mills was sentenced to one year and 305 days for violating his probation in his original conviction for first-degree burglary in May of 2012. Since the back-up time is more than 18 months, Parks will be incarcerated in the state penal system. The judge gave him credit for the 83 days he has been in jail awaiting sentencing.





                   Tyler Messick

Tyler Messick, 22, of Rocky Mount, NC was charged with violating his probation seven days after being released on his original conviction of stalking. “He did not last very long on probation,” his probation agent told the judge. As a result the judge imposed his back-up time of two years in the Maryland Department of Corrections. He was given credit for 83 days already served awaiting sentencing.




Derrick Connolly

Derrick Connolly, 28, of St. Inigoes, was sentenced to three years and six months in the state penal system for violating his probation on an original sentence for first-degree burglary. There were two subsequent charges against him after his release from jail, including one for second-degree assault. He also had charges against him in the District of Columbia. He was given credit for the 86 days he has served.
