JONESBORO — Charlie Ray Partain Jr.’s problems didn’t end Friday with District Judge David Boling giving him a $150,000 bond on charges he committed a string of vehicle break-ins last Thursday.
Later Friday, Boling filed a motion in circuit court to revoke his three probations for previous crimes.
Partain pleaded guilty in 2019 to a terroristic act and received five years of supervised probation.
In 2020, he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and breaking or entering in two separate cases and received five years supervised probation on each case.
Now Partain is looking at 15 years in prison for his past misdeeds as well as even more time if he’s convicted of new charges, which Boling said were 31 counts.
In a petition to revoke his probation, prosecutors said Partain “has failed to live a crime-free life” and cited a theft by receiving of a credit or debit card and fraudulent use of the card in February.
The petition also cited that Partain has a balance of $1,770 due to the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office for restitution, fines and court costs, which “the defendant has willfully failed and refused to pay.”
Partain bonded out of Craighead County Detention Center on Friday afternoon.
The terroristic act that Partain pleaded guilty to in 2019 involved a drive-by shooting in which Partain, then 16, shot at an apartment on Pineview Street in north Jonesboro. He was charged as an adult in that shooting.
According to a Sun news story at the time, police said they found three bullet holes in the southside of the apartments, as well as bullet holes inside the building.
The driver of the vehicle from which Partain fired at the apartment was Kameron Irby, who was charged in a March 2020 shooting on Melrose Street. Partin was later charged with first-degree terroristic threatening for posting a video online where he held a gun and said he wanted to shoot the police investigator. He was arrested and given a $500,000 bond.
