A Killeen man on parole less than a month for a felony weapons conviction is heading back to prison after he was found with cocaine within 1,000 feet of a Killeen elementary school.
Archie Terrell Scaife, 30, agreed to plead guilty and accept a 15-year prison sentence Monday to an enhanced drug possession charge only moments before the case was heading for trial.
Scaife was arrested in his home, adjacent to Fowler Elementary School in Killeen, where police discovered a little less than 2 grams of cocaine in his possession during the execution of a search warrant by Killeen police Oct. 30.
On May 13, 2008, Scaife was sentenced to four years in prison for felony possession of a firearm.
Scaife was released in October of last year, just five months later. Source: Killeen Daily Herald
Maybe serving only a few months of a four year sentence was not much of a deterrence. Perhaps with his record he should have stayed longer. Hopefully, this time will be different...but I won't be holding my breath.
