Mabrey is back in jail, after violating probation

HELENA – A Helena suspect who promised a judge he’d follow the rules of probation and parole two weeks ago is back behind bars.

Leslie Aaron Mabrey was seen in Lewis and Clark Justice Court Monday afternoon. He was arrested on a probation and parole pick-up and hold order.

On February 20th, District Judge Mike Menahan gave Mabrey suspended sentences for threatening public officials and failure to register as a violent offender.

At sentencing, Mabrey’s defense attorney told the court his often volatile and erratic behavior was due to a previously undiagnosed medical condition; a condition now mitigated by Hepatitis C medication.

Mabrey is now accused of refusing to undergo mental health and chemical dependency evaluations ordered by the Department of Corrections.

Bond in the case has been set at $20,000.00.

The Lewis and Clark County Attorney’s Office has filed a petition to revoke the two suspended sentences.
