A Plymouth man will be going to prison after violating the terms of his probation.
Gregory Mullins, 35, was sentenced on Jan. 10, 2010 to ten years in the Indiana Department of Corrections with four years of that sentence suspended. After his release from prison on Feb. 7, 2012, he was placed on two years of reporting probation. In August of 2012, Assistant Chief Probation Officer Abby Caswell found that Mullins violated probation. Urinalysis examinations returned in September of 2012 that detected the presence of amphetamine and methamphetamine. This led to the filing of the revocation of probation.
By September of this year, a seventh amended motion to revoke his probation was filed alleging numerous other violations of probation including another nine urine tests that showed positive results for amphetamine and methamphetamine.
A court hearing was held Thursday in Marshall County Superior Court 1 where Mullins admitted to violating his probation by testing positive in urine tests on several occasions.
Chief Deputy Prosecutor Nelson Chipman argued that with the frequency of his probation violations he should serve the four suspended years in the DOC. Mullins’ defense attorney argued that Mullins had taken numerous steps to break his methamphetamine habit and deserved another chance at drug rehabilitation.
Judge Robert O. Bowen ordered Mullins to serve the remainder of his ten year sentence in the Department of Corrections. Judge Bowen ordered that the four years be served as purposeful incarceration which will give Mullins the opportunity to complete intensive drug rehabilitation while incarcerated.
