A convicted sex offender and drug offender, 35 year old Jonathan Lee Tucker of Gaylesville – will be heading back to prison after Circuit Judge Shaunathan Bell revoked his probation.
Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver stated that Tucker, after being convicted and serving a period of incarceration in the state penitentiary for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender in Cherokee County, and for Unlawful Possession of Precursor Chemicals in DeKalb County – was eventually placed on probation.
His overall sentence on those two cases was 25 years – with five years of the time imposed in the failure to register case and the remaining 20 imposed in the possession of precursor chemicals case.
He served about two years of that sentence prior to being placed on probation.
On Wednesday (March 7th 2018) Deputy District Attorney Scott Lloyd presented evidence against Tucker to Judge Bell concerning an arrest by Sheriff’s Office investigators on the additional charges of Trafficking Methamphetamine, Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and the Unlawful Distribution of a Controlled Substance back in August of 2017.
After hearing the evidence presented by Lloyd, Judge Bell declared Tucker guilty of those new charges, revoked his probation – and then ordered him to serve the remainder of his sentences in prison.
