Jail Sentence Imposed By Alexander County Judge

An Alexander County man received a jail sentence. 39-year-old Daniel Ray Burgess of Taylorsville, was sentenced Monday (October 16) to serve 120 days in jail. He was ordered to serve the time after having his probation revoked by a judge in Alexander County District Court. Burgess has been given credit for 34 days of time already served. Burgess was taken into custody on September 7 and was charged with probation violation and taken to the Alexander County Detention Center.

Burgess received probation following a conviction earlier this year in Alexander County. According to the North Carolina Department Of Adult Correction Offender Public Information website, Burgess was convicted in January of misdemeanor counts of possession of schedule III controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He received probation and a twelve month suspended sentence.

When Burgess arrived at the Alexander County Detention Center, methamphetamine was reportedly found in his sock by Detention Officers. Following that discovery, the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office charged Burgess with felony counts of possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance on jail premises. No court dates were listed for those charges as of earlier today (October 18).
