A Booneville man who was initially sentenced to probation but sent to prison for violating the terms of the probation is on his way back to prison for violating terms of parole.
William Lee Goff, 33, actually plead not guilty and guilty to violating those terms in the same day.
When arraigned Friday morning Goff plead not guilty and was assigned a public defender. Shortly before 1:30, through a second public defender, he plead guilty and was sentenced to 12 months in the Arkansas Department of Correction.
Fifteenth Judicial District Judge Jerry Don Ramey questioned Goff at length and reminded him he had time to prepare for a bench trial if he desired, but Goff said he understood the proceedings and wished to continue.
When asked which of the terms of probation or parole he had violated, Goff said he had failed to pay his fines.
Goff had received a probationary sentence for theft of property in September of 2015. In April of 2016, probation was revoked and he was sentenced to five years in the Arkansas Department of Corrections, with three years suspended, and he was ordered to pay court fees, fines and restitution.
