Court Report


John F. Strohmaier, Judge

Criminal Sentencing

Richard Dean Manley, 58, Grand Coulee, pleaded guilty Sept. 28 to second-degree burglary in connection with an Oct. 27, 2016, break-in at the Wilbur Cemetery. Additional charges of possession of a stolen firearm and making and/or having burglary tools were withdrawn by prosecutors as a result of a plea agreement. His sentence includes 59 days in jail (with credit for time served), $860 court assessments, $400 public defender reimbursement and restitution to be determined.

New Juvenile Offender Matter

A 16-year-old Medical Lake boy is charged with three counts of second-degree malicious mischief, two counts of second-degree vehicle prowling and two counts of second-degree criminal trespass in connection with Christmas Eve, 2016, vandalism activity in Davenport that left two Davenport School District buses and a Midland Electric utility truck with extensive damage. Windows and mirrors were smashed out of both buses, and a camera was thrown from one, resulting in about $10,000 damage. A potential buyer that had offered $500 for them withdrew its offer. Windows were broken out of the Midland Electric truck that was parked near the school bus garage yard.
