Burglars, drug criminal sentenced

NATCHEZ — Two burglars and a drug criminal are off the streets for after being sentenced by Adams County Circuit Court Judge Forrest “Al” Johnson Thursday.

Two stepbrothers involved in a rash of 17 house burglaries from October 2008 to September 2009 each pled guilty to three counts of burglary of a dwelling.

Jarred Rebold, 26, was sentenced to serve 51 years, 17 years for each count, in Mississippi Department of Corrections, District Attorney Ronnie Harper said.

Rebold’s prior felony conviction enhanced his sentence more than his stepbrother’s.

Rebold’s stepbrother, Jade Neal, 21, pled guilty to three counts of burglary and was sentenced to 21 years, seven years for each count, in MDOC.

While Harper said the brothers were believed to be involved in 17 counts of burglary, plea negotiations lessened the counts to three.

However, Rebold and Neal were each ordered to pay $114,057.75 in restitution for all 17 counts.

Harper said the brothers should serve 85 percent of their sentences before being eligible to apply for parole.

In a separate case, Walter Terrell Jones III, 25, 111 Tubman Circle, pled guilty to possession of more than 30 grams of cocaine and was sentenced to 27 years in MDOC. Harper said Jones’ sentence includes 25 years behind bars and two years on post-released supervision for possession.

In addition, Jones will serve a five-year balance on top of his recent sentence from a previous robbery charge because his parole was revoked.

Harper said Jones, Rebold and Neal will be held at the Adams County Jail until MDOC officials transfer them to the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Rankin County for processing and orientation, at which point their specific prison assignment will be determined.
