Man lashes out at judge after receiving maximum sentence

CHEROKEE COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A Cherokee County man received the maximum sentence of 20 years in prison Wednesday for violating his probation multiple times.

The Cherokee County District Attorney's Office says Orlanda George Hill asked the judge for another chance at probation but his request was denied.

Hill pled guilty to selling cocaine in 2008 and was sentenced to ten years of probation. In February, the State of Texas filed a motion to revoke his probation, listing multiple violations, including consumption of marijuana, breaking curfew and involvement in a burglary in Leon County. Hill was apprehended by Leon County deputies during the investigation of a burglary of a convenience store in Jewett, Texas.

Under cross examination, Hill admitted to running from Jacksonville police officers in December 2013 during the investigation of a family violence incident between Hill and the mother of his child. After a chase on foot, he was caught and charged with assault family violence, evading arrest and criminal trespassing.

At the conclusion of the testimony, Judge Bascom W. Bentley III ordered Hill to serve the maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. After the sentencing, Hill became rude and belligerent with the judge, verbally lashing out, leading to increased security in the courtroom as he became more and more aggressive.

Cherokee County District Attorney Rachel Patton said she supports the judge's ruling, saying it sends a strong message to anyone on probation that violations should not and will not be taken lightly.
