A Georgesville man was sentenced to two and-a-half years in prison Friday on top of a 18-month sentence he is currently serving.

Harland Hanshaw, 40, previously pleaded guilty to a single count of complicity to burglary in Madison County Common Pleas Court.

Hanshaw was arrested for an attempted burglary Jan. 1, 2013 in West Jefferson with co-defendant William Boyd. Hanshaw drove the getaway vehicle, according to the report.

Hanshaw was indicted in February 2014, but was not served with the charges until June 2015, according to assistant county prosecutor Nick Adkins.

He was recently arrested for drug trafficking in Ross County, and served with the indictment while incarcerated.

Thomas Arrington, Hanshaw’s attorney, asked for no additional prison time on top of the sentence he is already serving. He said his client wants to recover from his drug addiction, and to be there for his unborn child.

Adkins said Hanshaw had a significant criminal history, including previous prison time. He asked the court to impose a prison sentence additional to the sentence he is serving.

Hanshaw is currently four months into his 18-month sentence.

Also in common pleas court Friday:

• Joseph Meyers, 32, of London, has his community control sentence extended a year after testing positive for cocaine on Aug. 11.

He was originally sentenced to two years of community control in December 2014 after pleading guilty to a charge of drug trafficking.
