Trimayne Franklin, 30, pleaded guilty to felony possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and was immediately sentenced to 9 to 18 months in the Butler County Prison followed by six months of county probation following the expiration of his parole. He was also ordered to pay court costs. This all stems from when he was charged with drug distribution in 2012.
Franklin was wanted on a warrant since that incident, when he was arrested in April 2017, following a shooting at a home at which he had been staying in the 100 block of East Brady Road, East Franklin Township, Armstrong County.
He was also wanted on a bench warrant issued in July 2012 after he failed to appear in Butler County Court for a probation violation in connection with a conviction in a 2010 felony drug case, as well as by Butler police since March 15, 2016, when Police say he fired a gun after trying to break into a home on Sumner Avenue in Butler.
Butler police allege that Franklin forced open a locked screen door before firing a round at the front porch steps area.
The last proceeding in that case, according to court records, was a bond hearing on Nov. 9, where bond was reduced from $75,000 to $1. That case is still listed as active.
