As part of the agreement, Beasley will be required to serve the 120 days in-person at the workhouse unless the Adult Correctional Facility determines COVID-19 precautions require him to be released on electric home monitoring, the attorney's office said.

During the remote sentencing, the victims cited severe emotional trauma from Beasley pointing a gun at them, saying it affected their lives both personally and professionally. Beasley said he regretted the incident, adding, "I am not that person. I humbly apologize for my actions."
