Franklin Delano Hagans, 46, of Langley, entered the guilty plea in circuit court and agreed to an offer of 15 years in prison, which was probated, meaning he will serve seven years followed by seven years of supervised probation. During Hagans' seven years of probation, which are two more than are usually allowed in these kinds of cases, he risks up to eight years in prison for an arrest of any kind.
In Hagans' first case on Wednesday he entered a guilty plea to all 11 charges against him, including two counts of first-degree trafficking in controlled substance, two counts of first-degree complicity to trafficking in a controlled substance, two counts of intimidating witnesses, two counts of tampering with evidence, theft by unlawful taking of under $300, fourth-degree assault and criminal mischief. The two drugs were said to be Percocet and methadone.
In his second case, Hagans pleaded guilty to first-degree possession cocaine and misdemeanors other than traffic violations.
Hagans has been held in Johnson County since his bail was set at $250,000 April 11 and will remain there until his sentencing hearing Sept. 15 at 1 p.m.
