Criminal case proceedings
- Three Lawrence men have each been placed on 24 months of supervised probation after each pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Before being granted probation the three, Joseph A. Clarke, 22; Blair M. Racich, 21; and Brent M. Dummitt, 20, were each sentenced to serve 16 months in the custody of the secretary of corrections and to pay court costs. The three were arrested in December 1994 after police went to their residence to investigate a report that the men had been robbed and discovered approximately a pound of marijuana inside the residence in plain view.
- A Topeka woman recently was sentenced to 46 months in the custody of the secretary of corrections for her role in an April purse-snatching during which a 74-year-old Lawrence woman was knocked down as she walked across the parking lot of a local grocery story. Ina R. Cooper, 32, pleaded no contest to a charge of robbery early last month. Court records indicate that once she is released from custody she is to complete 36 months of post-release supervision. Court records indicate Cooper's Douglas County sentence is to run concurrently with a sentence on an unrelated conviction in Shawnee County.
- Tressa M. Hadl, 27, 2200 Harper, recently was placed on 18 months of supervised probation after pleading guilty to an amended charge of possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Court records indicate that before she was placed on probation, Hadl was sentenced to one year in the county jail and ordered to pay a $500 fine and court costs. She was charged originally with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of the Kansas Drug Tax Stamp Act. The charges stemmed from a June investigation by the Tri-County Drug Enforcement Unit.
