After some hesitation, a man charged with driving the getaway car in connection with the March 14 shooting death of Jonathan M. Dennis accepted a plea bargain Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court and pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact.
Victor Lawrence Anderson, 26, whose last known address before his arrest was 40 W. 115th St., New York City, was sentenced by Washington County Circuit Judge W. Kennedy Boone III to serve a three-year state prison sentence. As part of a plea agreement, Boone ordered Anderson to serve a concurrent three-year prison sentence for a violation of probation charge to which Anderson also pleaded guilty Tuesday. Boone ordered Anderson to serve three years of unsupervised probation upon his release.
Before Anderson pleaded guilty to the charges, Boone explained that if not for the plea bargain, which offered Anderson the two concurrent three-year sentences on the charges, Anderson might be facing more time.
