BRIEF: Chehalis Man Gets More Than Two Years After Second Conviction for Domestic Violence in Six Months

The Chronicle - 4/20/2017

April 19--A Chehalis man has been convicted twice in about six months for nearly identical domestic violence crimes involving the same victim.

Adam C. Sullivan, 34, was charged Feb. 17 with first-degree burglary in violation of a court order, harassment -- threat to kill, second-degree taking a motor vehicle without permission and third-degree malicious mischief, all with domestic violence enhancements.

He has been held since that hearing on $100,000 bail.

He pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of residential burglary and one count of second-degree taking a vehicle without permission.

He was sentenced to 29 months in prison.

On Feb. 16, deputies from the Lewis County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a burglary in the 200 block of Roe Road in Winlock. A woman reported Sullivan forced his way into her house, punched her and took her car, according to court documents.

Sullivan was convicted in November 2016 of residential burglary and fourth-degree assault for a similar incident at the same address with the same victim.

For that conviction, he was sentenced to five months in jail. He was released shortly before being arrested in the February incident.
