A charge of discharging a weapon into occupied property against Michael Ray Mazingo, 41, of Workhorse Lane, Advance, was dismissed in Surry County Superior Court on Tuesday. The charge was dismissed because the alleged victim was killed in a motor vehicle accident.
Paul Dale Pittman, 58, of Bunker Road, Mount Airy pleaded guilty to one count of breaking and entering, a class H felony. Charges of driving a motor vehicle without a registration and driving a motor vehicle without insurance were dismissed as part of the plea arrangement. Pittman was sentenced to 90 days probation, ordered to pay $1,075 in restitution, allow his firearm to remain confiscated and to undergo a mental health evaluation.
