Man gets 6-1/2 years for abduction, assault / February 19, 2018
A South Boston man has been sentenced to six and a half years behind bars following an April assault in which he abducted and attempted to strangle a victim after trespassing onto the property.

Jamand Ladel Edmonds was given an active prison sentence of three years on a felony charge of strangulation and two more years on a felony count of abduction by force. The incident in question took place April 29.

In total, Edmonds was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the two felonies, with 10 years suspended. He was ordered by the court to undergo anger management counseling upon his release and will be placed on supervisory probation for two years.

Edmonds also received additional active jail time of 18 months on three misdemeanor charges of damaging a phone line, trespassing and destruction of property.

The cumulative period of incarceration is six years and six months.

Edmonds was convicted in Halifax County Circuit Court in December after pleading not guilty to the charges. He remains incarcerated at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail detention center in Halifax.
