ARKANSAS COURT OF APPEALS
NOT DESIGNATED FOR PUBLICATION
WENDELL L. GRIFFEN, JUDGE
November 1, 2006
JOE MCKINNEY JONES, JR.
AN APPEAL FROM
SEBASTIAN COUNTY CIRCUIT
HON. JAMES MARSCHEWSKI,
STATE OF ARKANSAS
Joe Jones, Jr. appeals from the revocation of his suspended sentences. He argues that
the evidence does not support that he violated the terms of his suspended sentences by
committing residential burglary and terroristic threatening. We affirm the trial court’s order.
Jones was serving suspended sentences for drug-related offenses in two separate cases,
CR 95-1090 and CR 2002-1140. The conditions of his suspended sentences prohibited him
from violating any federal, state, or municipal law. On May 9, 2005, the State filed a petition
to revoke Jones’s suspended sentences, alleging that he had committed burglary and terroristic
threatening on May 3, 2005.
The evidence adduced at the hearing on the State’s petition was as follows. Jones and
his wife, Latasha Jones, were separated; during the separation, Latasha had an affair with
Kwincii Stewart. Latasha testified that Jones told her and her mother the week before the
burglary that he was going to “get” them; in addition, Stewart was made aware by his child’s
mother that Jones had threatened him.
The State alleged that the burglary that was the basis for the petition to revoke occurred
in the early morning hours of May 3, 2005. Stewart testified that earlier that evening, Latasha
phoned him and asked him to come over. Latasha and Stewart were asleep in the bedroom of
Latasha’s apartment. Latasha was awakened by the doorbell. Then, the window in the front
of the apartment was broken, followed shortly thereafter by
