Toccoa Man Pleads Guilty to Burglaries, Break-ins

A Toccoa man charged in connection to multiple burglaries, along with a vehicle break-in at a local church earlier this year will serve time in prison after pleading guilty.

24-year-old Joshua Franklin Spearman of Toccoa pleaded guilty in Stephens County Superior Court last week to two counts of burglary in the first degree, four counts of entering an automobile, and one count of theft by taking.

Mountain Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Chan Caudell sentenced Spearman to 12 months in jail and 10 years probation.

Spearman, along with Megan Lynn Spearman of Toccoa, who was 22 at the time, were indicted back in September in connection to multiple burglaries and other incidents.

The pair was arrested after a vehicle break-in at the First Alliance Church of Toccoa back in May and were also suspected in connection to multiple burglaries in FranklinCounty as well.

Megan Spearman’s case is still pending in Stephens County Superior Court
