District Court

Criminal case proceedings

  • Drug-related charges were dismissed recently against two Lawrence men who were arrested in March after a police detective found about 2 grams of what was believed to be crack cocaine during a search of their car. Zack Sanders Jr., 19, 2629 Kensington, and Damon L. Edwards, 18, 705 Mich., were both charged with possession of cocaine and violation of the Kansas Drug Tax Stamp Act. Court records indicate the charges were dismissed after a judge granted a defense motion to suppress physical evidence in the case.

Charleston, 17, Eudora, was sentenced Thursday to prison and then placed on two years of supervised probation for convictions on two counts of auto burglary and a single count of felony criminal damage to property.

He also was ordered to pay an unspecified amount of restitution, court costs and fees.
