COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

A Columbia man who pleaded guilty to trespassing at multiple Columbia schools was sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation Monday.

Kelvin Joe has pleaded guilty to two charges of first-degree trespassing in separate cases. Joe originally entered a not guilty plea for a trespassing case from April 9, but changed his plea this week.

Online court documents say Joe could face up to 180 days in the Boone County Jail if he violates his probation.

Joe was seen at Gentry Middle School and a private school on April 8. He was arrested later that month after he allegedly trespassed at West Middle School as well. Police said Joe went to the schools 'to bless students.' Joe was seen on security camera footage approaching a child during the incident at Gentry.

Boone County deputies arrested Joe in Hallsville back in June on suspicion of driving with a suspended or revoked license. Online court documents show Joe also changed a not guilty plea in that case on Monday. Sentencing in the case is scheduled to start on March 2.

  1. Boone county government is so unbelievably corrupt! I assure you their decision to give him unsupervised probation would have been a different decision if it would’ve been their grandchildren that he was approaching at that school.
