A Clovis man was sentenced to serve six years in prison for violating probation that stemmed from a burglary conviction, according to a press release from the District Attorney’s office.

Bernardo Rodriguez Jr., 41, was found guilty Sept. 8 of breaking and entering, resisting an officer and concealing identity and was placed on three years of intensely supervised probation, according to the release. While serving his probation, Rodriguez was arrested on new felony charges.

A motion was filed, and granted, to revoke Rodriguez’ probation and require he serve the remainder of his burglary sentence in the Department of Corrections.

The sentence was enhanced by four years due to previous felony convictions.
