Sex Offender Given Second Chance At Probation

Monday, July 21, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

A man on the sex offender list was given a second chance at probation after his violation was dismissed on Monday morning. 

Lebron Roy Wilkey's attorney, Michael Richardson, said, "It appears to me he's doing everything he can to complete the terms of his probation...He's going to classes, he's passing his drug screens, he's gainfully employed."

Wilkey was charged with a violation after several occasions where his ankle monitor battery was not charged correctly and after he crossed the state line with his brother into Georgia.  

However, it was pointed out that Wilkey was only over the state line for approximately 18 minutes. He testified that as soon as he realized where they were, he immediately told his brother to turn around. 

Criminal Court Judge Barry Steelman said, "The court believes it is important that Mr. Wilkey comply with all of the terms of his probation, particularly since he is a sex offender...But I will say this, the violations are alleged to be technical violations here."  

He continued, "What I'm going to do is I'm going to warn Mr. Wilkey on this occasion. I am pleased that Mr. Wilkey is attending his treatment as he is required to do, as so many people don't."

He said, "I know that Mr. Wilkey was reluctant to plead guilty and he did enter a best interest plea...However, he did plead guilty." 

Wilkey is on probation until 2015. Wilkey was originally charged with sexual battery of a minor by an authority figure back in 2006.
