Plea deal on commercial burglary charges lands Greenwood man in prison for six years

Robert K. Leftwich

A Greenwood man who has been in and out of trouble for the better part of two decades finds himself in the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center on an ADC commitment hold after a plea deal last week on various charges resulting in a six-year prison term.

Commercial burglary charges resulted in Robert K. Leftwich, 36, of Greenwood entering a guilty plea and being sentenced as a habitual offender in Sebastian County Circuit Court on Wednesday. An arrest in May for an April commercial burglary resulted in Leftwich being released on $5000 bond pending the outcome of his case. He was also charged with Theft by Receiving at the time.

That arrest triggered a reactivation of a drug case from 2018 for which Leftwich had received a 24-month imposed sentence for Possession with Intent to Deliver, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He also received 96-months of suspended sentences for that conviction, which came through another plea deal.

Leftwich also has similar charges out of Logan County in 2012 but according to Arkansas Court Connect the case was never prosecuted.

Leftwich also received six years suspended on Wednesday and was ordered to have no contact with the victim of the crime. Restitution will be determined at a later date.
