NEWPORT—The father of the man who is serving an 18-year prison term in the Megan Maxwell murder case himself entered a guilty plea on Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge in the case.

Sixty-four-year-old Terry Stock was granted a strictly supervised 11-month, 29-day period of probation after pleading guilty on Tuesday to being an accessory after the fact to murder. Charges of aggravated perjury and filing a false police report were dismissed as part of the plea-bargain.

Now living in Indiana, the defendant will be required to wear a global positioning satellite (GPS) device to assure that he complies with the terms of the plea agreement.

Stock’s son, 46-year-old Jeffery Stock, was ordered to serve 100 percent of an 18-year prison term after entering a “best interest” plea on January 9 to second-degree murder in the highly publicized Maxwell case.
