MO. Department of Probation filed recommendations against Robert Becker

The Missouri Department of Probation thinks that the former sheriff of Knox County, Missouri violated his probation from a 2018 Guilty plea.

Court records show that the Probation Department has filed two separate violations in Knox County Circuit Court against Robert Becker. The first was filed August 13th, and the 2nd was filed on Friday. Those are only recommendations to prosecutors, to possibly pursue in court. A spokesman for the State Attorney General's office declined to comment on why the filings were made, saying only that the cases are on-going. Becker pleaded Guilty in December, 2018 to misdemeanor counts of Domestic Assault and Sexual Abuse, in a case that was prosecuted by the Attorney General's office. Becker was sentenced to 5 years' probation and a suspended 2-year prison sentence.

Late last February, the Attorney General's Office pursued an alleged probation violation against Becker, claiming he violated his parole after he was charged in late December 2018 on misdemeanor hunting and weapon charges. A Knox County judge ruled that June that Becker didn't violate his parole, based on where his feet were planted when he used a firearm while hunting in late December, 2018. Prosecutors later dropped those charges.
