Man who violated probation to serve out 10-year term

March 12, 1998

A Westminster man, who served 12 days of a 10-year drug sentence, received the balance of the term yesterday after he admitted violating probation.

Garland R. Spivey, 30, of the first block of Liberty St. had been ordered in 1995 to remain drug-free during three years probation but tested positive for marijuana and cocaine on six occasions between November and January.

He had pleaded guilty in March 1995 to conspiring to distribute cocaine and was sentenced to 10 years with all but 12 days suspended, according to court records.

In May 1995, Spivey was extradited from Texas, where he had fled after being accused of not reporting to his probation agent.

Charges of violating probation were continued at that time, allowing Spivey to seek drug counseling.
