Press Release Emmit Franklin Sexton Jr

Locally in the news according to Commonwealth Attorney for Wise County and the City of Norton, Chuck Slemp, Wise County resident Emmit Franklin Sexton Jr, was sentenced in Wise County Circuit Court to prison for his fourth parole violation. The Press Release stated that this conviction was the result of absconding from supervision, failing to appear in court, and failing to maintain communication with his probation officer.
Sexton had been convicted in 2013 on a charge of Distributing a Schedule II Drug, and two felony accounts of Child Neglect. Sexton had finished serving his original sentence that was imposed late in 2014. Sexton’s suspended sentence however, was contingent upon the completion of five years of probation.
In June of 2015, the County Litter Warden had filed a charge claiming that Sexton had failed to complete a required fifty hours of community service, via the Litter Control Department. In March of 2017, Sexton’s probation officer filed a charge alleging that Sexton had violated his probation by violating a protective order, failing to cooperate with probation supervision and failing to disclose his residential address.
In April of 2018, the probation officer filed a violation charge alleging that Sexton had once again violated probation. The fourth violation resulted from the probation officer alleging that Sexton had tested positive for Methamphetamine in late 2018, in addition to absconding.
