Searcy felon popped for drug paraphernalia possession gets time added on to prison stay
A Searcy man already serving multiple sentences for convictions out of Crawford and White counties got some mire time added on after a plea deal on a January 22, 2020 arrest in Sebastian County in two count0s on Possessing Drug Paraphernalia.
Timothy R. Horton, 43, who has been in and out of the Arkansas Department of Corrections system on a continual basis dating back to 1988, made the trip last week to Sebastian County from the Ouachita Correctional Facility in Malvern for his court appearance.
Currently serving six years already on a myriad of crimes dating back to 2017 in Crawford and White counties, Horton saw four years added on the two felonies with six years suspended on each count, with all of that wrapped into a bundle to be served concurrently with his existing sentence.
According to information from the ADC . Horton's intake for his current sentence was March 27, 2017. Since that time, he has had an additional 72 months added to his time when he came back to Crawford County in April to face charges as a habitual offender in a fleeing case.
Since his first trip to prison back in 1998 out of Sebastian County, Horton has committed at least eighteen other felonies for which he has served time. Those have included Possession of a Controlled Substance and Paraphernalia, Breaking and Entering, Theft of Property, Residential Burglary, Forgery, Felling and Failure to Appear.
