Probation violator gets 18 months



A Hagerstown man who got a suspended jail term in April 1999 for domestic violence was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months in the Washington County Detention Center for violating his probation.

Adam Nathan Davies admitted to Washington County Circuit Judge Donald Beachley that he failed to report to his probation agent and that he failed to provide urine specimens on four different occasions.

Davies, 20, admitted beating his then-girlfriend during a Christmas Eve 1998 argument and was given an 18-month suspended sentence on April 21, 1999.

Davies was ordered to enroll in a batterer's program and to obtain drug and alcohol education. Beachley also placed him on probation for three years and fined him $245.

The victim, Elisa Harpster, said the incident happened because the couple were living together and were too young.

On Dec. 24, Hagerstown City Police were called to 336 South St. where they found Harpster crying. She told the officer she had confronted Davies about cheating on her and a fight ensued.

Her neck and arms were bruised and her elbow cut, Assistant Washington County State's Attorney Gina Cirincion said at the April 1999 hearing.

In exchange for the plea to second-degree assault, a charge of first-degree assault was dropped.
