Criminal case proceedings

  • An Aug. 17 jury trial has been set for a Jefferson County man who was shot in the legs after he allegedly kicked in the front door of his sister's mobile home in February. Michael R. Higgins, 33, Lakeside Village East, Ozawkie, is charged with making a criminal threat and criminal damage to property. He pleaded innocent to the charges earlier this week during his arraignment in Jefferson County District Court.
  • Prosecutors have dismissed charges of possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia that were filed against an Oskaloosa man in January. The charges against Douglas J. Allen, 30, were dismissed after a motion to suppress evidence in the case was granted.
  • Tremayne T. Brown, 18, 1104 Natalie Dr., has pleaded no contest to a charge of discharging a firearm into an occupied building. The charge was filed after an Oct. 11 incident in which shots were fired into a residence in the 1100 block of Sunset. Brown is to be sentenced June 30.
  • Drug charges that were filed against a Lawrence man in early May were dismissed recently by prosecutors. James W. Conlon, 30, 1228 La., had been charged with possession of LSD and violation of the Kansas Drug Tax Stamp Act. Assistant Douglas County Dist. Atty. Dan Dunbar said the charges were dismissed because the state didn't have the laboratory reports it needed to proceed with Conlon's preliminary hearing. He said the charges would be refiled once those reports are received.
  • Robert V. Cumpton, 31, Perry, recently pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal damage to property. In return for the plea, prosecutors dismissed charges of aggravated assault and battery that had been filed against Cumpton. The charges stemmed from a Feb. 25 incident in the 2200 block of Harper. Cumpton is to be sentenced June 21.
  • Richard A. Nelson, 26, Kansas City, Kan., has entered into a 12-month diversion agreement to avoid prosecution on a charge of making a false writing.

If he abides by all terms of the agreement, prosecutors will dismiss the charge at the end of the diversion period. The charge was filed in early January and involved a November 1994 deposit agreement with Emprise Bank, according to court documents.
  • Joseph L. Bolton, 19, 1508 Oakhill Ave., waived his preliminary hearing Thursday on charges alleging that in January 1994, he burglarized a residence in the 1500 block of Powers and stole firearms and a gun safe. He is to appear back in court June 12 for arraignment.
  • Five Lawrence men face June 30 sentencings in connection with a 1994 burglary in the 1500 block of Powers. During hearings earlier this week, Dale E. Sleeper, 20, Charles N. Mooney Jr., 24, and Larry D. Housworth Jr., 24, all of 1523 Lindenwood, each pleaded guilty to an amended complaint charging one count of non-residential burglary. James L. Simpson, 29, 1512 E. 15th, and David J. Mooney, 38, no address listed, each pleaded no contest to the same charge and were found guilty.
