Bartlett sentenced to ten years

A Mountain Grove man facing a battery of felony charges pled guilty and was sentenced to ten years’ incarceration last month. Thirty-two-year-old Adam D. Barlett, Jr. made headlines last October for a crime spree that included stealing a vehicle, breaking into a West Plains church, fleeing from police, and property damage. He was wanted for fifteen days before law enforcement executed, “a tactical vehicle intervention…due to Barlett’s extensive history of resisting by fleeing from law enforcement in a vehicle and creating a substantial risk to the public.”
Court records show that Barlett’s attorney entered a guilty plea on April 22 in two of the three criminal cases against him. On April 4, he had already pled guilty and was sentenced to ten years in the Missouri Department of Corrections on the second-degree burglary charges. 
On April 22, the Honorable Elizabeth Bock sentenced Bartlett to seven years DOC for tampering with a motor vehicle, and to four years DOC for first degree property damage. These sentences will run concurrent with the burglary sentence, and Barlett will receive credit for time served.
