Circuit Judge Philip B. Jordan presided over three plea agreement hearings Wednesday afternoon at the Tucker County Courthouse.
William M. "Mont" Miller, Tucker County's prosecuting attorney, presented cases against each defendant.
- Joshua Plumley, who was represented by attorney Timothy Prentice, pleaded guilty to the felony charge of entering without breaking into the George Woodford Station in Parsons.
The crime can carry a sentence of one to 10 years in prison. A deal was worked out with the defense and prosecution, however, which includes probation.
Jordan accepted the sentence agreement of three years probation, as recommended by both attorneys.
- Joshua Boyles, also represented by Prentice, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, oxycontin.
The crime can carry a sentence of one to five years in prison. The attorneys recommended a sentence of one year probation, in place of jail. Jordan accepted the recommendation.
- Dale Jones, represented by attorney Pat Nichols, was charged with conspiracy to distribute oxycodone.
He agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge, which can result in up to one year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
The attorneys presented Jordan with the recommendation that Jones be awarded one year of probation in place of prison.
Jordan agreed to accept the probation sentence agreement.
