Violation of Probation Leads to 30 Year Prison Sentence

Don Trummel has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for violating the terms of his probation. His probation was also revoked and terminated.

The defendant was sentenced in 2011, to 93 months in prison, followed by ten years of sex offender probation, for two counts of Lewd or Lascivious Conduct.

The case involved the defendant molesting two children at a daycare he previously ran in Lee County, which is now closed. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office conducted the original investigation.

He violated probation by using the internet without permission, having a small business without reporting it, and having unauthorized contact with minors.

Assistant State Attorney Erin Hughes handled the case.
