DOBSON — Several felony charges were dismissed against Randall Kinrod Hylton, of Dobson, in Surry County Superior Court after a co-defendant pleaded guilty for the crime.
Hylton, 37, of Windy Lane, pleaded guilty to simple possession of a schedule VI controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor charges stemming from a June 2013 incident.
From an April 2014 incident he also faced felony charges of breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, larceny of a firearm, safecracking, obtaining property by false pretense and possession of stolen goods and property, all of which were dismissed.
According to court documents, Senior Resident Superior Court Judge A. Moses Massey ordered all personal property seized by the state for those charges to be returned to the defendant.
For the misdemeanor convictions Hylton was sentenced to three days in jail and credited three days for pretrial time served.
