Criminal Sentencings

Raymond Burdette Greene, 44, of Sprague, pleaded guilty Sept. 12 to third-degree assault (amended through plea negotiations from second-degree assault) in connection with a May 12 altercation in Sprague that involved five individuals, leaving one with back and knee injuries. His sentence includes 12 months probation, three months jail, a drug/alcohol evaluation and recommended treatment, $800 court assessments, $450 public defender reimbursement and restitution to be determined. A no-contact order is in place to protect the victim. Three counts of fourth-degree assault involving three other alleged victims were dismissed as a result of plea negotiations.

Jerry Wayne Armstrong, Jr., 41, of Ritzville, pleaded guilty Sept. 12 to attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle on Feb. 8. He was sentenced to 10 days jail with credit for time served and must pay $800 court assessments and $450 public defender reimbursement. The charge involves a response by Odessa Police to a report that a man had been assaulted at Chiefs Bar and Grill. After an intoxicated man drove away and was stopped by an officer at SR 21 and Hoppe Road, he took off again, launching a pursuit to the Adams County line and the driver’s eventual apprehension with the assistance of Adams County officers after the vehicle crashed on King Ranch Road about two miles south of SR 28.

Chelsie Dallema Conica, 24, of Spokane, pleaded guilty Sept. 12 to conspiracy to possess methamphetamine in connection with a Jan. 30 traffic stop north of Wilbur. Her sentence includes 12 months probation, 48 days jail (credited as served), $1,000 court assessments and $300 public defender reimbursement. The original charge of possessing methamphetamine was amended as a result of plea negotiations.

Erik Conrad Johnsen, 52, of Wilbur, pleaded guilty Sept. 14 to two counts of possessing controlled substances (narcotic psilocybin mushrooms and marijuana) with intent to manufacture and/or deliver, two counts of distributing controlled substances to individuals under age 18, and one count each of manufacturing marijuana and unlawful use of a building for drug purposes. His sentence includes 60 months prison, $800 court assessments, and a chemical dependency evaluation and recommended treatment. He must not possess or use non-prescribed drugs and not have any contact with children under age 18 (except his daughter). The court did not order restitution and waived a public defender reimbursement.
