Probation revocation hearing for former Knox Co. Sheriff set for next week

Probation revocation hearing for former Knox Co. Sheriff set for next week

2 months, 1 week ago by Scott Hardy

Robert Becker will also be arraigned on weapons, hunting charges

A hearing's been set for next week for a former Knox County Sheriff, whose parole agreement with the Missouri Attorney General's office could be revoked.  

Records show that on Tuesday, a March 19th date in Knox County Circuit Court was set for Robert Becker. An Assistant Attorney General filed a motion earlier this month to revoke Becker's 5-year probation. He received that sentence in late December, after pleading Guilty to misdemeanor counts of Domestic Assault and Sexual abuse, in a settlement with the Attorney General's office. Becker resigned as Sheriff as part of the agreement. The AG's office filed the revocation after new misdemeanor charges of Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Illegal Disposal of Wildlife were filed in late February in Knox County Associate Court. Becker's accused of shooting at a deer along a Knox County road the day after Christmas, while hunting with relatives. That was a week after his Guilty plea in the Assault case.  

Becker's also set to be arraigned March 19th on the new charges. If his probation's revoked, Becker would have to serve a two-year prison term.
