YORK – Dustin Braddock, 23, of Geneva, will be sitting out the rest of his post-release supervision period (which will extend into late April) because he violated the terms of that supervision order.

He was convicted in February, 2017 of attempted possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver.

Court documents indicate that his arrest and subsequent conviction stemmed from an undercover investigation in York County, during which he sold a controlled substance to a confidential informant while being recorded and watched by investigators.

In May of 2017, he was sentenced to one year in jail with credit for 38 days already served. When he was released from custody, he was required to be under post-release supervision for 18 months.

But that was later revoked as the violations included being charged with new crimes, failing to report with probation officers, failing to report for testing, using methamphetamine and marijuana, quitting his job without informing probation officers, testing positive for marijuana use, refusing testing and failing to show up for mandatory tests six times.

And he absconded 18 days, the prosecution said.

“The state believes he needs to serve out the remaining days in the county jail,” York County Attorney Christopher Johnson said this week.

“Yes, you left treatment, you possessed marijuana,” said Judge James Stecker before sending Braddock back to jail.
