A young man from Carrollton is due in court at 10:30 this morning for a probation violation hearing. Last June, 18 year old Alex Beech pleaded guilty to 1st degree arson that happened at a home on East 3rd street. He was sentenced to 5 years supervised probation.

Beech is also facing charges of alleged statutory rape with a 13 year old victim after police received a tip last month. Beech’s hearing is scheduled for the Carroll County Circuit Court.
