Just minutes before a Circuit Court hearing at the Calhoun County Courthouse Wednesday, Talris "Sweet T" Brown of Blountstown changed his not guilty plea to guilty on violation of probation charges.
The case stems from a jail incident in recent months when Brown, behind bars for a 2010 cocaine possession charge, allegedly complained the pancakes and eggs served to him at breakfast were cold. According to the State Attorney's Office, Brown threw his meal against a wall. When a jailer ordered him to move to another cell, he reportedly refused, broke a mop handle in half and threatened an officer. In addition to violating his probation, he received new charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, resisting an officer with violence and introduction of contraband into a county detention facility.
Brown was sentenced to 67 months in prison with credit for 19 months served in jail. He faced a potential 30 year sentence had he gone to trial.
