The court ordered Anderson be placed on probation for two years, pay $145 restitution both jointly and severally with his co-defendant within six months of his release, and to stay away from his victim and Clover General Store.

Other Court Cases
• Donald Darnell Canada Sr., 46, of Halifax, was sentenced Monday to 10 years each in prison for two felony convictions, including the attempted murder of Donald Darnell Canada Jr., and maliciously shooting into an occupied building.

The court suspended all but two years and six months in prison for each charge, conditioned on the defendant’s good behavior for 20 years, and ordered him placed on probation for five years.

The court additionally ordered the defendant to undergo inpatient treatment for alcohol and complete an anger management course.

• Jerry Wayne Conner, 24, of Alton, was convicted Monday of a probation violation.

The court revoked 30 days of Conner’s previously suspended prison sentence, with weekend jail service authorized, and ordered the defendant to submit to random drug tests.

• Gary Thomas Owen, 40, of Halifax, had a charge against him for prescription fraud dismissed Monday in Halifax County Circuit Court.

• Brian M. Tucker, 25, of Halifax, was convicted Monday of two charges for petty larceny and a felony charge for destruction of personal property with a value greater than $1,000, following a disposition hearing.

The court had found evidence against Tucker sufficient for convicting him of the three charges at his July trial, but the court withheld its finding of guilt for five months in order for the defendant to pay $200 restitution to Staunton River State Park and $1,140 restitution to the Pepsi Bottling Group.

Tucker is free on bond pending sentencing set for the March court term.
