Commonwealth v. Timothy Floyd McHellon - Convicted Sex Offender Sentenced to 20 Years for Probation Violation

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth's Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, announced that Timothy Floyd McHellon, 30 years old, of Virginia Beach, Virginia, was sentenced today by Circuit Court Judge James C. Lewis for Violation of Probation (Good Behavior). Judge Lewis sentenced McHellon to twenty (20) years in prison.

Judge Lewis found McHellon guilty after he stipulated to the good behavior violation. Had this matter gone to trial, the Commonwealth's evidence would have proven that on April 4, 2019, McHellon was convicted of one (1) count of Indecent Exposure and three (3) counts of Obscene Sexual Display in the Virginia Beach Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.  The date of offense for these new charges was November 19, 2018, therefore violating the good behavior conditions ordered on May 22, 2018. 

On May 22, 2018, McHellon was sentenced before the Virginia Beach Circuit Court for Forcible Sodomy – Victim Under Age 13 (3 counts), Aggravated Sexual Battery, Attempted Rape, and Custodial Indecent Liberties.  For these charges, McHellon was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge William R. O'Brien to fifty (50) years in prison with twenty (20) years suspended, leaving thirty (30) years to serve, conditioned upon good behavior during the period of his incarceration and for twenty (20) years from the defendant's release from confinement, in addition to indeterminate supervised probation.

McHellon has additional prior convictions for Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Giving a False Name to Law Enforcement, Hit and Run, and Possession of Marijuana (2 counts).

​The case was prosecuted by Assistant Commonwealth's Attorneys Janeé D. Joslin and C. Andrew Rice. Please contact Amanda Herman or Kristina Hopkins if additional information is desired.
