Cameron Hagy, the driver in a late 2010 shooting, robbery and rape in Eastwood Garden Apartments, was taken into custody Friday and now awaits a decision about a probation violation that could land him back in jail.
Hagy, 22, was sentenced to serve four years for tampering with physical evidence and criminal facilitation to kidnapping, but has been on supervised probation since December 2011.
Under the terms of his probation, Hagy was ordered, among other things, to pay court fees and remain drug-free. However, in mid-June he tested positive for marijuana after a random drug screen during a meeting with his probation officer.
Friday, Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland made a motion to send Hagy back to the Franklin County Regional Jail by revoking his probation.
Public defender Kristin Gonzalez, Hagy’s attorney, said Hagy has looked for rehabilitation options, but without a job, cannot afford to attend an outpatient center.
“I will say that he has been putting in applications at several different job sites, but given the criminal record that he now has, he hasn’t been able to get a job anywhere,” Gonzalez said.
Gonzalez offered to make copies of the applications to show the court that Hagy is attempting to find employment.
“He can’t get a job because he continues to use cocaine and marijuana,” Cleveland said.
Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd said he would review the case and rule on the probation revocation. Hagy will remain at the jail until the decision is handed down this week.
“It’s a miracle you weren’t killed in the last incident you were involved in and that somebody else wasn’t killed,” Shepherd told Hagy.
Police say the incident began when Corey McGrapth approached Selvin Ardon in the parking lot of Eastwood Garden Apartments early Dec. 31, 2010, asked him for a cigarette, demanded money and shot Ardon in the abdomen with a .40 caliber handgun. McGrapth then kidnapped Ardon’s girlfriend and pulled her into Hagy’s Chevrolet Trailblazer at gunpoint, court documents say.
Hagy drove McGrapth to a field off Stedmantown Lane, where McGrapth raped the woman, the records show.
McGrapth has pleaded guilty to charges of robbery, assault, rape, sodomy, kidnapping, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and tampering with physical evidence. Shepherd is slated to formally sentence McGrapth July 27.
Cleveland recommended that McGrapth serve 18 years each for robbery, assault, kidnapping and sodomy; 10 years for possessing a handgun as a convicted felon; and five years for tampering with physical evidence.
