Starke Circuit Court Judge Kim Hall accepted a plea agreement between the State and defendant Christopher McNeese in which he was sentenced in two different cases to a total of 15 years in the Department of Corrections.
McNeese pleaded guilty in a plea agreement to a charge of Burglary as a Class B Felony. Per the terms of the agreement, McNeese was sentenced to 11 years in the Department of Corrections with no part of the sentence suspended.
He also pleaded guilty to a charge of Failure to Register as a Class C felony. He had two counts of failure to register, one of which was a prior conviction so those two charges combined into a Class C felony. He was sentenced for four years with no part of the sentence suspended in this case.
Those sentences were ordered to run consecutively. If he successfully completes the CLIFF or GRIP program, he may petition the court for a sentence modification.
