The Galax man convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the May 18, 2010 shooting death of Bryon Jordan Wilson of Hillsville will serve an additional four years and three months in prison for a probation violation.


Richardson, 23, was originally convicted of involuntary manslaughter, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and discharging a firearm in an occupied dwelling after a two-day jury trial in Carroll County in March of this year in Wilson’s death. Richardson was originally charged with first-degree murder, but was ultimately convicted of the lesser charges as his defense attorney built the case that he acted in self-defense. He was sentenced at the time to serve 13 years in prison by Carroll County Circuit Court Judge Brett Geisler, with four of those years suspended.


On Sept. 26, Richardson was found guilty of a probation violation, Carroll County Commonwealth’s Attorney Nathan H. Lyons said, and ordered to serve an additional four years and three months in the Virginia Department of Corrections. Richardson’s combined sentence from the underlying convictions and the probation violation is now 13 years and three months.
