Rockport man faces probation revocation

By George Chappell | Dec 21, 2012

Rockland — A 55-year-old Rockport man faces 177 days in jail if his probation is fully revoked.

David Leland made an appearance in Sixth District Court in Rockland Dec. 19 before Judge Patricia Worth to face charges of probation revocation, based on a new charge of operating under the influence.

Leland entered a denial plea on the probation revocation. Leland was placed on probation for violating a protection from abuse order on three different occasions, according to court documents. The judge scheduled a hearing in superior court for April 10, 2013, for the revocation.

Bail was set at $500 on a mutual agreement between defense lawyer for the day William Pagnano and Assistant District Attorney Jeffrey Baroody.

Pagnano said no date has been set for a hearing on the OUI charge.

Violating a PFA on three occasions?  Probation?
