A St. Mary’s man was released on seven days served in pretrial custody after he acknowledged last Friday in court that prosecutors had evidence to support a charge against him of being an accessory after a crime of murder, a 2010 shooting in Lexington Park.
A judge sentenced James Brian Sheehan, 35, of Lexington Park to five years in prison, suspended to the seven-day sentence and five years of supervised probation.
Sheehan’s plea hearing followed the sentencing this month of Andrew Allen Carter, 26, of California to 30 years in prison from Carter’s guilty plea to second-degree murder in the August 2010 death of Antonio Nathaniel Pollard Jr. at an apartment on Lexwood Court.
St. Mary’s detectives arrested Sheehan during their investigation on initial district court charging papers alleging he told Carter after the shooting that the weapon used in the crime had been hidden, and for Carter “not to worry.”
