YORK – Andre Hill, 42, formerly of York and currently of Geneva, has been sentenced to another 10 months in jail as his post-release supervision has been revoked in a case where he was convicted of being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon.
According to court documents, the case began last year when a woman reported to the York Police Department, in the middle of the night, that Hill was pounding on her door and she didn’t want him to gain access to her residence.
The arresting police officer wrote in his report that while on his way to the woman’s residence, he saw Hill on a bicycle and stopped to speak with him.
Because Hill was already on probation, the officer asked to search his backpack.
During that search, the officer found a knife with a four-inch blade and brass/iron knuckles. Both are prohibited from being in Hill’s possession because he is a convicted felon.
He was sentenced last October, for that conviction, to a term of 10 months in jail to be followed by two years of post-release supervision. At that time, Judge James Stecker read Hill’s past convictions and reminded him he had already been in jail 28 times. (The subsequent sentence and this most recent sentence bring that total to 30).
Hill was eventually released from jail but his post-release supervision was revoked because he violated the terms. This week, Judge Stecker sentenced him to another 10 months in jail, he was given credit for 81 days already served and he was ordered to another 24 months of post-release supervision after he is released from jail.
