HART – A 39-year-old Shelby man was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court, June 17, after absconding from probation over 20 years ago.

Jason Allen Yerbey, of 117 Pine St., was found guilty of probation violation and sentenced to seven months in jail with credit for 52 days served and $60 restitution.

Yerbey absconded from probation shortly after being sentenced in 1997, according to Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon. He was placed on absconded status in 1998 after leaving the state.

Probation, which stems from a Nov. 10, 1997 conviction of second-degree home invasion, was revoked.
