FORMER DIXON CITY MARSHAL MICHAEL PLUMMER PLEADS GUILTY TO HINDERING PROSECUTION, SURRENDERS HIS PEACE OFFICERS LICENSE PERMANENTLY AND CONSENTS TO QUO WARRANTO JUDGMENT WAIVING ANY CLAIMS TO OFFICE OF DIXON CITY MARSHAL
Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney, announces that Michael Plummer, the former City Marshal for the City of Dixon, pled guilty today in Circuit Court action in a Phelps County case, which was originally filed in Pulaski County but had previously received a change of venue.
 
Pursuant to a plea agreement with the State, Plummer pled guilty to Count VI of the indictment, which was the Class A Misdemeanor charge of Hindering Prosecution related to the release of a driver who blew over the legal limit for alcohol, but whose case was never forwarded to the State or any prosecutor for charges.  Plummer entered a plea pursuant to North Carolina v. Alford, wherein he did not admit guilt, but did admit that based on the evidence, there was a substantial likelihood that he would have been found guilty at trial and wished to accept the plea agreement offered by the State.
 
The plea agreement was done after consulting with the City of Dixon and was done with the consent of the City of Dixon. 
 
The terms of the plea agreement are that in exchange for his plea of guilty to Hindering Prosecution, the following would occur:
 
  • Defendant would receive a suspended imposition of sentence and be placed on one year’s probation.
  • Defendant would surrender his Peace Officer license permanently.
  • Defendant would consent to a judgment in the Quo Warranto removing any claim he had to the office of the City Marshal of the City of Dixon.
  • Defendant agreed to pay $1615.00 in restitution to the City of Dixon.
  • Defendant agrees to pay court costs in the matter.
  • Defendant agrees to return all city property to the City of Dixon.
  • The State agreed to drop all of the other charges against the Defendant now pending and to not file any other charges against Defendant related to his activities as a law enforcement officer or City Marshal.
  • The State agreed to drop the Stealing charges against Shelia Plummer.
  • The State agreed not to object to an early termination of probation if all conditions of probation are met.
 
“Our criminal justice system is built on the trust that the police, prosecutors, defense counsel, and judges all act with integrity and fairness in the handling of cases.  This case demonstrates that when a police officer does not act with integrity, it can cause the entire criminal justice system to be damaged and cause the public to doubt the work of all of those honest police officers who work hard everyday to ensure justice to both defendants and victims of crime,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman. 
 
“With this plea agreement, the public can be assured that the Defendant will never again be able to be a police officer and will never again be able to do damage to the criminal justice system. In addition, this plea brings full closure to the criminal part of this case and allows the City of Dixon to move forward and begin the process of healing and rebuilding the police department.”
 
“I want to thank and commend the current and past city officials and staff, including the past and present mayors of Dixon, who fully cooperated with the Auditor’s Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and my office as we went through this difficult process.  I appreciate their support in the investigation and ultimate resolution of the case.  I also want to commend the police officers who came forward to report the misconduct and the investigators of the Missouri State Highway Patrol who investigated this case, specifically Sergeant Dan Nash and Sergeant Jason Trammel.  Their hard work helped to uncover this misconduct and ensure the integrity of the criminal justice system. Finally I wish to thank the members of my staff, and the Assistant Attorney Generals who assisted with the prosecution of this case.”
 
This case was prosecuted by Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman, Assistant Attorney General Josh Harrel, Assistant Attorney General Ted Bruce, and Assistant Attorney General Danett Padgett.

Quo Warranto Petition Filed Seeking to Prevent Michael Plummer from Assuming Duties as Dixon City Marshal Without a Valid Peace Officer’s License

Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney, announces that today in Pulaski County Circuit Court, he has filed a petition in Quo Warranto, on behalf of the State of Missouri, seeking to prevent Michael Plummer from assuming the office as the Dixon City Marshal.  The basis for this action is Michael Plummer currently does not hold a valid peace officer’s license in the State of Missouri and thus, he is not qualified to become the Marshal, which is a position requiring a peace officer license.  In addition, anyone who would grant him such a commission might also be committing a crime under Missouri law.
 
Quo Warranto is an extraordinary writ that is granted by Missouri statute to the Attorney General or the County Prosecuting Attorney giving either officer the authority to file on behalf of the State of Missouri.  If granted, the Circuit Court then has the power to order the removal of an elected official for misconduct or prevent an elected official from taking office if that person is unqualified to assume the office.
 
“I did not take this action lightly, especially in light of the plurality victory in the recent election won by Mr. Plummer.  However, I have a duty as the Prosecuting Attorney to the citizens of this County to uphold the law.  Someone who does not have the proper qualifications under the law should not be allowed to assume a position of trust,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman.  “We would never allow a Circuit Judge who does not have a valid law license or a teacher without a proper teaching certificate to assume their duties, no matter the circumstances, and this is no different.  In light of recent events, I would ask that everyone respect the process and your fellow citizens and allow this issue to be properly and peacefully decided in the Courts and to respect the ultimate decision of the Courts.”
 
The Prosecutor’s Office reminds everyone that the facts stated in the petition are allegations until proven by a preponderance of the evidence in court.
 
Please direct all questions to Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney.

CHARLES SHATTUCK-KNAEBEL SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON PLUS FITY YEARS FOR THE MURDER OF JAMES DUNHAM IN JUNE 2013
Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney, announces that in Circuit Court action today in Morgan County, on a change of venue from Pulaski County, Charles Shattuck-Knaebel of Richland was sentenced to life in prison plus fifty years for his role in the murder of James Dunham of St. Robert in June 2013.
 
Shattuck-Knaebel originally pled guilty on May 13, 2015 as part of a plea agreement but withdrew from that agreement and requested a change of venue to Morgan County.  The case was set for jury trial in Morgan County beginning April 4, 2016.  At the pretrial hearing held today, Shattuck-Knaebel pled guilty as charged to Murder in the Second Degree, Robbery in the First Degree, Burglary in the First Degree, Armed Criminal Action, and Receiving Stolen Property. 
 
Judge Kenneth Hayden accepted the pleas of guilty.  Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman recommended a sentence of life imprisonment on the Murder charge, and a combination of 50 years on the other charges to run consecutive to one another.  Judge Hayden followed that recommendation and sentenced Shattuck-Knaebel to life imprisonment plus fifty years, to run consecutive.
 
“James Dunham was a 92 year old WWII veteran and a retired career Army NCO who was brutally beaten and killed because he interrupted the burglary of his home by Mr. Shattuck.  To me, it strikes at the heart of our community for good citizens like Mr. Dunham to be attacked in the place that they are supposed to be most safe, their own home,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman. “I am very pleased that Judge Hayden followed my recommendation in this case and ensured that someone as dangerous as Mr. Shattuck-Knaebel spends the rest of his life behind bars where he belongs.  He will never be able to prey upon anyone else in this, or any other community.”
 
“I want to recognize the hard work of the members of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department who spent tireless hours investigating and solving this crime.  Their work meant that the two men who committed this heinous act are in prison where they belong.  Specifically, I want to single out the good police work of the lead detective, Detective Doug Renno, the first two responding patrol deputies, Mike Mogan and Eric Dean, Detective Don Hayden, Evidence Custodian Dianne Hayden, Jailer Amanda Brabrandt, and Chief Deputy John Groves who were all essential in obtaining this conviction and sentence.  Our county is truly blessed because these police officers worked hard and came together to bring closure to the victim’s family as well as our entire community.  We are all safer because of these law enforcement professionals.”
 
This case was prosecuted by Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman and Assistant Attorney Generals Josh Harrell and Darrell Moore.  The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department investigated this case.

RACHEL VALENCIA PLEADS GUILTY TO CHILD ENDANGERMENT AND POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE
Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney announces that in Circuit Court action today, Rachel Valencia of Crocker, pled guilty to one count of Child Endangerment and one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance.  Both charges are class C felonies that carry a maximum punishment of seven years in the Department of Corrections.
 
In exchange for her plea of guilty, the State agreed to dismiss the other charges currently pending against her. The State also agreed to recommend a sentence of seven years in the Department of Corrections on each count, to run consecutive to one another for a total of fourteen years.  The State recommended that the judge retain jurisdiction under Section 559.115 RSMo with a recommendation for substance abuse treatment while in the Department of Corrections.  This recommendation means that the judge can release the defendant after 120 days if she successfully completes the program and the judge so chooses, and place the defendant on probation for a period of five years.  The conditions of probation, if granted, would be ordered at that time.
 
After hearing witnesses called by the State and the Defendant during sentencing, Judge Beger took the case under advisement and set it for March 23, 2016 at 9 am for sentencing.
 
“Our main goal in the prosecution of this case was to make sure that Ms. Valencia did not have a chance to harm any other children,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman.  “While the recommended sentence is not perfect, we determined that we could achieve most of our goals with this plea and sentence and it was not worth the risk of a trial.  In addition, her pleas of guilty bring finality to this case and allow the victims to move forward with their recovery and family court proceedings.”
 
This case was prosecuted by Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman and Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys Ken Clayton and Kathleen Croker. The Crocker Police Department and Missouri Department of Family Services investigated this case.
 
Please direct all questions to Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney.

It's already proven Cruz is eligible. Trump knows how to create doubt though. Rubio is in his sights also. Trump said he would consider Cruz for the vp slot. he wouldn't say that if he doubted his eligibility. The GOP is doing exactly what the dems did, Schumer, Biden, Obama, etc...
