Career criminal sentenced to 20 years in prison

A Newberry man with a criminal history spanning nearly 30 years was sentenced Wednesday afternoon to 20 years in prison after being convicted of multiple theft offenses, announced 8th Circuit Solicitor David M. Stumbo.

Sterling Maybin, 49, was found guilty by a Newberry County jury of three counts of petit larceny and two counts of second-degree burglary, violent. The petit larceny charges were enhanced due to the numerous property crimes on Maybin’s criminal record, which dates back to 1991.

Circuit Judge Donald Hocker sentenced Maybin to 10 years in prison on each of the three larceny charges and eight years on each of the burglary charges. Judge Hocker ordered that two of the larceny sentences be served consecutively and all other sentences to run concurrent to the others, meaning that Maybin will serve a total of 20 years in state prison.

In April, Maybin stole multiple pieces of landscaping equipment from two different residences inside the City of Newberry. Both homeowners had motion-activated surveillance cameras that captured Maybin in the act of stealing the items. Both victims reported the crimes on April 24 and police were able to locate Maybin later the same day wearing the same clothes he had on in the surveillance videos.

Deputy Solicitor Dale Scott and Assistant Solicitor Taylor Daniel handled the case for the State, with assistance from 8th Circuit Investigator Walter Bentley and Victim Advocate Rhetta Christian. Maybin was represented by Charles Verner of the Newberry Public Defender’s Office.

Solicitor Stumbo praised the work of his staff along with lead investigator Allison Moore of the Newberry Police Department in securing the conviction and lengthy prison sentence.

“I am satisfied to see a career criminal like Sterling Maybin back behind bars where he belongs,” Solicitor Stumbo said. “My office will continue to stand with law enforcement our community safe from offenders like Sterling Maybin, who have no problem with robbing people of both their belongings and their peace of mind.”
