Probation ordered in drug case

December 6th, 2018 in Local News

A Jefferson City man was placed on five years of supervised probation after pleading guilty to three counts of delivery of a controlled substance and one count of resisting arrest.

Robert Stapleton Jr., 39, pleaded guilty during a hearing before Cole County Presiding Judge Pat Joyce.

A Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement stated Stapleton was sitting in a vehicle on Duane Swift Parkway on April 2, 2017, when he was found to be in possession of several controlled substances, including cocaine, heroin and marijuana.

As officers attempted to take Stapleton into custody, he fled on foot but eventually was caught.

Stapleton has multiple convictions for possession of controlled substances and for resisting arrest.
