Durantrae Logan, convicted in 2012 murder, pleads guilty on separate charges

Friday, September 27, 2013 | 8:45 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Durantrae Logan, who is serving time for a 2012 murder, pleaded guilty Friday at the Boone County Courthouse to unlawfully possessing a firearm and resisting arrest in a November 2011 incident.

Logan accepted the recommended sentencing of seven years for unlawful possession and four years for resisting arrest.

He is serving 20 years for armed criminal action and second-degree murder in the slaying of Lamont Sargent, 39. Sargent was killed in a shooting at his apartment in downtown Columbia in March 2012.

In the 2011 incident, Columbia police were pulling Logan over for speeding when they saw a gun thrown from the passenger side of the car. After he was pulled over, Logan sped off in a way that was dangerous to those around him, according to the complaint read at the plea hearing.

Logan will serve the two unrelated sentences concurrently.

Judge Kevin Crane also agreed to dismiss a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm from an arrest in 2010 in exchange for Friday's guilty plea.
