Jury finds bail bondsman guilty of stealing money

GREENVILLE, N.C. -

A jury just found a Pitt County bail bondsman guilty of stealing stolen money.
     
The jury found bail bondsman Darryl Wayne Daniels guilty of felony possession of stolen goods for his part in a theft of tens of thousands of dollars from 2011.
     
Now he's going to jail.
     
Just like the trial and details of the crime, the sentence is unusual.

Darry Wayne Daniels is in the business of getting people out of jail. Now, the Pitt County bondsman is headed behind bars himself for 30 days.

It's something his lawyer his family and the district attorney didn't expect.

The charges stem from a 2011 robbery at a Grimesland home, where two men are accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from their barber's home.

One of the suspects, Justin Page, contacted the bondsman, Darryl Daniels, and asked him to bail out with money he stashed in a barn. When Page got bailed out, he claimed the bondsman stole tens of thousands of dollars.

The jury deliberated for about 4 hours and found him guilty of stealing.

Daniels was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 5 years probation. The judge also ordered him to pay $70,000 in restitution and stripped him of his bondsman license.
