A Mineral man could have faced up to 220 years in prison for his crimes, but a plea agreement with the Louisa County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office reduced his maximum sentence by 100 years.
Jason Edward Rhoten, 29, appeared in circuit court on Monday, Dec. 9, where he pleaded guilty to three counts of breaking and entering and grand larceny. According to his plea agreement, three counts of breaking and entering and grand larceny were dropped by the commonwealth.
Rhoten plead guilty to stealing a Bose Docking System, a 50-inch television, two laptops and a flat screen television on Oct. 22, 2012, in the 1000 block of Jackson Road.
Then on Oct. 30, 2012, Rhoten burglarized a home in the 100 block of Old Apple Grove Road, stealing a Panasonic television.
