1-gavel 400

(Jonesboro) A 38-year-old Jonesboro man was sentenced Monday to 50 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to charges related to beating his girlfriend and putting a gun to her head.

Steven Honeycutt entered guilty pleas to charges of first-degree battery and possession of a firearm by certain persons. Honeycutt also pleaded guilty to a petition to revoke his previous probation due to a new theft charge.

“Mr. Honeycutt will either be imprisoned or under the supervision of a parole officer for most of his remaining natural life,” the prosecutor said.

Honeycutt has been booked in the Craighead County Jail more than 40 times since 1993.
