A man sentenced to 55 years in prison for the attempted murder of an Anne Arundel County police officer was sentenced to more time behind bars Tuesday. 
 
Colvin White, 31, of Annapolis was sentenced to nearly seven more years in prison for a probation violation. 
 
According to a release from the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office, he was on probation following a 2009 conviction for conspiracy to commit armed robbery. He violated that probation due to his conviction for the attempted murder of Anne Arundel County Police Cpl. Lawrence Adams. 
 
In June, Circuit Court Judge William C. Mulford Monday sentenced White to life plus 20 years, with all but 55 years suspended.
 
 
The incident for which White was on probation involved the armed robbery of citizens in the Meade Village area. In the early morning hours of Feb. 20, 2009, White and four other men robbed a couple in Meade Village, near where White lived at the time. Victims told police that White was armed with a long rifle and took $60 and a cellphone from them.
 
After a jury found him guilty, he was sentenced to 12 years in prison, with all but five years suspended, and served around half half that time before being released on probation.
 
White shot Adams in April 2015.
