Hoskins Appeal

Linn Hoskins plead guilty to stealing a TV, stereo, and CD's as well as breaking into the apartment of a former roommate and choking her. Instead of jail time he was put on probation, during which time he stole an ATV and damaged property. While waiting for that sentencing, he also atempted to escape. As part of a plea agreement, the court gave him multiple sentences on all the crimes but the escape charge, which he appealed. But the state supreme court agreed with the lower court, saying Hoskins did not have grounds in his appeal, saying his only argument was improper plea negotiations, which the judge overruled. Hoskins will have to serve his sentence.
