Criminal case proceedings

  • District Court Judge Robert Fairchild ordered Lenn D. Barnes, 22, Lawrence, into custody following a sentencing hearing Friday afternoon. Barnes pleaded no contest to attempted aggravated battery, attempted burglary and possession of a firearm by a felon on April 1. Part of the plea agreement, defense attorney Randy McGrath said, was that Barnes would enter a community corrections program if a Labette County "boot camp" denied his application. The boot camp denied Barnes, but community corrections officers had no supervision program outlined because Barnes had missed several appointments. Fairchild sent Barnes to the Douglas County Jail, where he will remain until his new sentencing date, 4:30 p.m. Thursday. The charges stem from three separate incidents last fall.
