Reamey: 10 years for theft of urns

SoVaNow.com / November 28, 2012
Clint Anthony Reamey, 42, of Chase City was convicted Monday on two felony counts stemming from the theft of numerous bronze flower urns from Crestview Memorial Park in South Hill in April. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison on each count for a total of 40 years.

However, Circuit Judge Leslie Osborn suspended all but five years from each count, meaning Reamey will serve a total of ten years for his crimes. Once he completes his jail time, Reamey will have five years of supervised probation.

The judge “forever banned” Reamey from returning to or entering upon the grounds of Crestview Memorial Park. In addition, Reamey was ordered to pay restitution of $2,975. He also has court costs of $815.

In September, Reamey entered an Alford Plea to charges of grand larceny, larceny with intent to sell and receiving stolen property, stemming from the thefts.

An Alford Plea is a guilty plea in criminal court, except the defendant does not admit to having engaged in the act. Instead, the defendant admits that sufficient evidence exists with which the prosecution could likely convince a judge or jury to convict the defendant of the crime.

Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Sgt. D.L. “Rusty” Callahan spent several weeks in September and October working to return the stolen urns to the victims.
