BALTIMORE (WMAR) - A man on probation for murder was sentenced yesterday for multiple drug-related arrests.
Barry Lee served a 10-year jail sentence for second degree murder and received a 20-year sentence yesterday for violating the terms of his probation when he was convicted of the multiple drug-related arrests.
In September 2000, Lee pled guilty to second degree murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a crime. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison with all but 10 years suspended and 5 years of supervised probation.
Released from jail in January 2011, Lee was arrested in Baltimore City and Carroll County in separate incidents four months later, both times for alleged drug possession. Both cases resulted in convictions.
A failure to comply can result in the imposition of the total balance of suspended prison time, which is what Lee received.
