Eight Offenders Sentenced to the Department of Corrections

Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney announces that in Circuit Court action over the last month, eight offenders were sentenced to terms of imprisonment in the Department of Corrections.  The eight are:

The first defendant was Grant Singleton of Springfield.  The defendant was on probation for Stealing of a Motor Vehicle.  After failing to follow the terms and conditions of probation, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a motion to revoke his probation.  Judge Wiggins granted the motion and sentenced the defendant to seven years in the Department of Corrections.  He is eligible for treatment while in the Department of Corrections.  The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department investigated the original case.

The second defendant was Kayla Bennett of Dixon.  The defendant was on probation for Assault in the Second Degree.  After failing to follow the terms and conditions of probation, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a motion to revoke her probation.  Judge Hickle granted the motion and sentenced the defendant to four years in the Department of Corrections.  She is eligible for treatment while in the Department of Corrections.  The Waynesville Police Department investigated the original case.

The third defendant was Robert Frye of Stoutland. The defendant was on probation for Burglary in the Second Degree.  After failing to follow the terms and conditions of probation, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a motion to revoke his probation.  Judge Hickle granted the motion and sentenced the defendant to five years in the Department of Corrections.  The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department investigated the original case.

The fourth defendant was Candice Harden of Richland.  The defendant was on probation for felony Driving While Intoxicated.  After failing to follow the terms and conditions of probation, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a motion to revoke her probation.  Judge Hickle granted the motion and sentenced the defendant to four years in the Department of Corrections.  The original case was investigated by the St. Robert Police Department.

The fifth defendant was Christopher Howell of St. Robert.  The defendant was on probation for Statutory Rape in the Second Degree.   He also pled guilty to a charge of Abuse of a Child, which occurred prior to the case for which he was placed on probation.  Judge Hickle sentenced him to seven years in prison on each count.  The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department investigated the cases.

The sixth defendant was Shannon Hood of Richland.  The defendant was on probation for felony Driving While Revoked.  After failing to follow the terms and conditions of probation, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a motion to revoke his probation.  Judge Wiggins granted the motion and sentenced the defendant to three years in the Department of Corrections.  The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department investigated the original case.

The seventh defendant was Charles Thomas of Waynesville.  The defendant was on probation for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Burglary in the Second Degree.  After failing to follow the terms and conditions of probation, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a motion to revoke his probation.  Judge Hickle granted the motion and sentenced the defendant to five years in the Department of Corrections on each charge.  The defendant is eligible for treatment while in the Department of Corrections.  The St. Robert Police Department investigated the original case.

The eighth defendant was Matthew Carter of Dixon.  The defendant pled guilty to felony Non-Support of a Child.  Judge Hickle sentenced the defendant to two years in the Department of Corrections.  The Child Support Enforcement Agency investigated this case. 

“These cases reflect my policy of being tough on probationers who do not adhere to the terms and conditions of probation.  When a court grants someone a second chance and they throw away that opportunity by committing more crimes or failing to follow the terms of probation, they can expect to go to prison,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman. 

The cases were prosecuted by Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman and Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys Laura Kriebs, Dean Matthews, and Bill Hardwick.

Just out of curiosity, what makes the 4th and 6th defendant's original charges felonies? (driving while intoxicated and driving while revoked)

They most likely had 3 prior convictions to the ones they were placed on probation for

Always wonder how the eighth guy is going to pay for child care from prison.
If your going to be dumb, you better be tough!
