A Douglas County judge ordered a 32-year-old Lawrence man to serve intensive probation terms for convictions in three cases, including one in which he was accused of stealing a diamond ring in November 2011 from Hurst Fine Diamonds.
Brian N. McCoy had pleaded no contest in July to three cases, including felony theft in the diamond ring case. He also had pleaded no contest to misdemeanor criminal deprivation of property and two drug cases in two separate cases, according to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office.
District Judge Kay Huff reinstated a 12-month probation term for McCoy in a 2011 misdemeanor theft case and ordered him to serve two more consecutive 18-month probation sentences for other cases. He’s also required to pay more than $1,000 restitution.
He faces a 10-month prison sentence in the diamond ring theft case and 30 months in prison in the drug case if he’s found to violate terms of his probation.
