Criminal Sentencings

He originally was charged with possession of methamphetamine and residential burglary in two separate cases. “I continue to maintain I’m not guilty,” he wrote in a statement to the court, “but would rather plead to this than face the possibility of conviction of more serious offenses at trial and more confinement.” His sentence includes 100 days jail with credit for time served, along with payment of $1,960 in penalties and a yet-to-be determined amount of restitution. The county will foot the bill from the public defender for $1,570.68.

As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors withdrew charges of residential burglary, first-degree theft and tampering with physical evidence. Her sentence includes nine months in jail with credit for time served, along with payment of $800 in penalties and a yet-to-be determined amount of restitution.
