A 30-year-old Fort Smith man who lived in a transient motel on Towson up until his arrest in December on Failure to Appear and Petition to Revoke charges and a Parole Violation was sentenced last week to two concurrent five-year terms in the Arkansas Department of Corrections according to information obtained from Sebastian County Circuit Court.
Dillion Loyd Coleman Self, who lived in the 5700 block of Towson Avenue, was arrested December 21 of last year on drug and paraphernalia possession charges. In court last Wednesday his charges were amended to one count of Possession of Fentanyl and he was also convicted of a C Felony for failure to appear. That plea deal resulted in the five year sentences set to run concurrently.
In addition, Self, who was sentenced as a habitual offender saw a total of 35 years suspended in the two cases. As part of the plea deal, petition to revoke charges were dismissed.
Self has a lengthy rap sheet dating back over the past decade, with arrests for domestic battery, theft of property, failure to comply with court orders, failure to appear, assault on family or household member, criminal trespass and fleeing as well as resisting arrest and other various misdemeanors.
According to information from the Sebastian County Detention Center Self was last transferred from Sebastian County to the ADC in May of last year.
