On Tuesday, Criminal Court Judge E. Shayne Sexton sentenced Larry Poore to a nine year prison sentence. 

Poore, formerly of Speedwell, but recently residing in Barbourville, KY, pleaded guilty in July to one count of aggravated burglary, three counts of burglary, one count of theft greater than $10,000, two counts of theft greater than $1,000, and one count of theft less than $1,000.  After a sentencing hearing, Judge Sexton ordered the counts involving separate victims to be served consecutively for a total of nine years in the custody of the Tennessee Department of Corrections.

Detectives David Honeycutt, Jason Henegar, and Tim Shrout investigated the case for the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Office.  Assistant District Attorney Matthew McClung prosecuted the case on behalf of the 8th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/17/2019-6AM)
