Criminal case proceedings

Jaymes A. Scott, 49, 3323 Iowa, recently was sentenced to one to five years imprisonment but then granted a five-year probation term for a felony count of forgery. The charge was filed after Scott forged a check in May. After pleading guilty this summer to the charge, the state dropped three additional forgery charges.

A jury trial has been scheduled for Dec. 16 in the case of Barbara A. Evans, 18, Topeka, who reportedly burglarized several automobiles overnight Sept. 9. Evans and Trevor Brown, 20, Topeka, who also allegedly took part in the burglaries, both are charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal damage, three felony counts of auto burglary, four misdemeanor counts of theft, one felony count of aggravated burglary and one felony count of possession of burglary tools. Evans pleaded not guilty to the charges, and Brown pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of criminal damage and theft and two felony counts of auto burglary. The state dropped the remaining charges against Brown, whose sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 5.
