South Boston man gets four years in prison for dealing drugs / March 25, 2019
Willie Timothy Brandon of South Boston will serve four years in prison after pleading guilty to three charges of drug distribution at his trial Friday in Halifax County Circuit Court.

The court imposed a total sentence of 30 years — 10 on each of the felony counts — with all but four years of his term suspended. He was ordered to report to jail on April 5 and will be placed under house arrest until that time.

In other court rulings:

» Randall Blair Bowen of Virgilina received a five-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty Friday to unlawful wounding. The charge was reduced from malicious wounding and Bowen waived a formal indictment in entering his guilty plea.

» Laura Beth Fallen of Alton pleaded guilty to forgery, shoplifting and identity theft — all felony charges — and will be sentenced May 30.

» Anthony Paul Ali Jr. of Halifax pleaded guilty to three charges of distributing drugs and will be sentenced June 6.

» Jamie Allen Seamster of Vernon Hill was found guilty of seven felony charges of possession of guns and ammunition, buying or receiving stolen property, fraud and drug possession after pleading not guilty to all charges. He will be sentenced for the offenses on June 6.
