Habitual offender gets 10 years in prison for grand larceny

 

NATCHEZ — After three previous convictions and multiple arrests, a Natchez man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for grand larceny as a habitual offender after pleading guilty to stealing a vehicle in May 2018.

Andrew Morgan was sentenced by Judge Lillie Blackmon Sanders in Adams County Circuit Court Friday. As a habitual offender, Morgan is not eligible for a reduced or suspended sentence or eligible for parole or probation.

Morgan pleaded guilty to stealing a 2016 GMC SUV from a Natchez residence on May 23, 2018.

Morgan had been previously convicted of grand larceny and the stealing of a vehicle three times before Friday’s sentence.

Morgan was convicted in May 2013 for grand larceny and sentenced to serve ten years with the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Morgan was then convicted in April 2014 for the unlawful taking of a vehicle and sentenced to serve five years in prison.

In May 2016, Morgan was again convicted of grand larceny, non-habitual, and sentenced to five years in prison. Morgan was on parole from the 2016 charge when he was arrested for the May 2018 incident.
