A Chesapeake man will spend two years in prison after pleading guilty Friday to complicity to burglary.

Aaron Thompson, 19, of 331 Township Road 1010, had been scheduled to stand trial Thursday in connection with that charge. Lawrence County Common Pleas Judge Richard Walton ordered Thompson to pay court costs and gave him credit for time served while awaiting conclusion of his case.

Thompson was one of four people accused of breaking into a Chesapeake residence in September 2003, according to information from the office of Lawrence County Prosecutor J.B. Collier Jr.

Also late last week, Michael Johnson, age and address unavailable, was sentenced to six months in prison after he

pleaded guilty to probation violation.

Johnson was found guilty in 2000 to complicity to the illegal processing of drug documents. At that time, he was sentenced to three years community controlled sanctions under intensive supervised probation, with time reserved if he violated the terms of his sanctions. Probation officials last week cited numerous instances during which Johnson violated his probation, among them substances abuse, consorting with substances abusers and shoplifting.

Johnson entered his guilty plea before Lawrence County Common Pleas Court Judge Frank McCown.
