Man sent to jail after failing to pay restitution ordered in burglary

January 08, 1998

A Smallwood man, who has not paid $2,000 in restitution ordered in a 1995 burglary case in Mount Airy, was sentenced yesterday to serve one year in Carroll County Detention Center after his probation was terminated.

James S. Lawhead, 20, was found guilty of violating probation in October but was given until yesterday to make an effort to pay restitution, court records show.

Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. said the debt was not collectible and imposed the jail term.
