Covicted murderer changes plea to avoid life sentence

Bonham – After being found guilty by a jury, a Fannin County man, who had originally pleaded not guilty, changes his plea to guilty to avoid a life sentence.

Bo Bailey Harris has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for the murder of William Ian Adams of Greenville in 2008.

A Bonham jury found him guilty of the crime Tuesday, following six days of testimony. The jury was also in charge of determining punishment for Harris, who was facing a maximum sentence of life in prison. However, Harris changed his plea to guilty to receive the lesser sentence.
