Jeremy Mayfield the former diver of Nascar has been convicted for the crime of possessing drug paraphernalia and stolen goods and he was taken to the Catawba County Court this Monday. Mayfield was also suspended from his 45 day sentence and was placed for unsupervised probation for a period of 18 months. As a fine he also had to pay $1100 and on top of that he was charged $88124.41 for the restitution to the victims and also for other costs. A recent press release regarding Mayfield gave all these details.
A statement was also passed by James Gaither, the District Attorney where it was said that the sentence which Mayfield was serving was in fact a part because of the of the death of a key witness. The first sign of his wickedness was noticed in the year 2009 when he was first suspended by Nascar. That year he was convicted twice for the use of methamphetamine.
The suspension got upheld after two appeals because of the fact that he denied the usage of illegal drugs. Later that year on the 1st of November there was a raid done by the police and he was found to possess stolen property. The police acquired heavy machinery from his house that was stolen from some nearby company and also found several equipments that belonged to a particular racing operation.
Mayfield’s house went into foreclosure and he along with his wife were taken into custody by the police in 2012 in the month of November. In the month of December his 12000 square foot mansion was burned to ashes by the firefighters in Catawba because it was a part of their practice drill. With the records Mayfield held it was not at all expected that he would turn out to be such a spoilt sport.
