Back-up jail time levied in theft conviction

Larry Thomas Stine, Jr.

Leonardtown, MD -- A St. Mary’s County man has been sentenced to a year in jail for violating probation in a conviction for theft scheme, less than $1,000. Larry Stine, Jr., 34, of Avenue was sentenced June 22 by Judge Michael Stamm in St. Mary’s County Circuit Court.

Judge Stamm originally sentenced Stine March 7, 2014 after he pled guilty to one of 10 charges that had been placed against him. Stine and a co-defendant, Robert Woods of Abell, were arrested on November 14, 2013 by St. Mary’s County Deputy Timothy Snyder. The men were allegedly attempting to steal two air conditioning units from an abandoned gas station in Lexington Park for the purpose of selling them for scrap metal.

In the original sentencing Judge Stamm imposed an 18-month jail sentence but suspended a year of that. Stine had previously admitted to violating his probation in the case during an April 13, 2015 hearing.

Stine was represented at the sentencing hearing by public defender Sean Moran. The state was represented by Deputy State’s Attorney John Pleisse.
