HILLSVILLE ― A Hillsville man accused of a stabbing in the Hickory Hills Shopping Centre Jan. 31 will spend two years in the Virginia Department of Corrections, after being found guilty June 27 of a lesser charge.
Raymond A. Rosier appeared in Carroll County Circuit Court with attorney Chip DeHart before Judge Brett Geisler to enter a plea agreement in the case.
The agreement called for reducing the charge of malicious wounding against Rosier to unlawful wounding, according to Marty Parks, who handled the case for the prosecution.
The incident caused bodily harm to Robert Chrisley, which ended up costing him medical expenses and lost wages, Parks told the court.
Geisler accepted the plea agreement and sentenced Rosier to five years in prison, with three years suspended.
His probation period will go for three years upon his release. Geisler also ordered Rosier to pay $19,472 in restitution.
Rosier, who fled the scene of the incident and was arrested during a traffic stop in Wythe County Feb. 10, will get credit for time served while awaiting trial.
