PRESS RELEASE
6/8/11

Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney, announces that today in the Circuit Court of Pulaski County, Craig Turner of Waynesville, was sentenced by Judge Tracey Storie to ten years in the Department of Corrections for Robbery in the Second Degree. 

On March 23, 2011, after a two day jury trial, a Pulaski County jury found that Mr. Turner robbed a tourist from England during the early morning hours of November 5, 2010, at the Relax Inn in St. Robert, Missouri. Mr. Turner was apprehended shortly after the robbery by members of the St. Robert Police Department and much of the victim’s property was recovered and returned to him.

“Today’s sentence sends a message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated in Pulaski County.  Criminals who prey upon innocent victims, as happened in this case, should be aware that their conduct will cause them to spend significant time in the Department of Corrections,” said Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman.

The Prosecutor’s Office wishes to thank the St. Robert Police Department for their hard work on this case, especially Detective Jeff Saylor, Officer Mike Hartness, Officer Dan Cordova, and Officer Jennifer Hicks.  The Prosecutor’s Office would also like to thank the board members of the County Law Enforcement Restitution Fund (CLERF) who agreed to fund the witness travel from England back to Pulaski County.  Without those funds, a conviction in this case would not have been possible. The prosecution of the case was handled by Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman and Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Ken Clayton.

unfortunate. Was a decent Kid. I had dealing with him a few years back. Tried to intervene in a Whoopin on his girlfriend and got Educated how to box...lol. First fight I Ever Lost. He could have been one hell of a Boxer. Should have turned his talents that way. See If this town decided to build a teen center or a sports center, instead of spending a Shit ton of money on a golf course, mabey these kids can find something to do besides get in trouble. JMHO. Lotsa young kids in trouble these days and theres virtually nothing for them to get into but trouble. I guess the powers that be like them in trouble, Paid for a golf course....!!!!

I am planning on doing a mid-year report at the end of this month.  I do not have the statistics you asked for but should at that time.  Keep in mind that many of the cases we are disposing now were filed last year.

of the 700 plus cases filed how many have been resolved.
