Pleadings and sentencing
The Russell Circuit Court reached decisions in a number of cases on Sept. 9th.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Mathew Leveridge reported the following as the outcomes of a number of the cases before that court.

Lutz has pretrial diversion revoked for failing Drug Court
Janal Lutz’s pretrial diversion was voided for failing to complete the Drug Court program. Lutz had been placed on pre-trial diversion so she could enroll in the Drug Court program. Lutz was terminated from the Drug Court program.
Leveridge argued that Lutz’s termination from Drug Court violated her pretrial diversion agreement. Leveridge stated that Lutz should be sent to the penitentiary as a consequence of her actions. Hon. Vernon Miniard, Jr., Judge of the Russell Circuit Court granted the request and voided the diversion. Sentencing is set for October 10, 2008.

Mann sentenced to 10 years but given probation at victim’s request
Adam Mann was sentenced to 10 years in prison and granted probation on Leveridge’s. Mann pled guilty to numerous charges, including burglary and theft related charges. Leveridge said he recommended Mann be placed on probation at the request of the crime victims.
While on probation, Mann will be required to complete a six month drug rehab, obtain his GED, perform 100 hours of community service and pay $100 to the Russell County Partners in Prevention. Should Mann fail to abide by the terms of his probation, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

Powell given 5 years with the opportunity to participate in the pretrial diversion program
Danny Joe Powell entered a guilty plea to one count of Bribe Receiving by a Witness according to Commonwealth’s Attorney, Matthew Leveridge. Powell was accused of taking cash from a criminal defendant in return for changing his story or being absent from the trial.
Leveridge said that Powell was given a 5-year sentence on the charges, but will be given the opportunity to complete the pretrial diversion program instead of going to prison. If Powell fails to complete the diversion program, he faces 5 years in prison.

Rikard sentenced to 5 years in prison and ordered to repay crime victims
Julie Rikard of Russell Springs was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Rikard previously pled guilty to numerous charges, including possession of controlled substances, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft of controlled substances, criminal possession of a forged instrument 2nd degree and theft by unlawful taking over $300.
Leveridge said he recommended that Rikard receive the 5-year sentence and be ordered to repay the victims after her release from prison.

Mann enters plea to burglary
Ronald Mann entered a plea of guilty to one count of burglary, 3rd degree according to Leveridge. Mann was accused of breaking into a home owned by his former wife.
Leveridge said he recommended that Mann receive a 5-year prison term but, upon the request of the crime victim, Leveridge said he recommended that Mann be granted pretrial diversion. Should Mann fail to complete the diversion program he faces up to 5 years in prison.

Delinquent father ordered to pay child support or face prison
Tyler Brumley accepted 5 years in prison for failing to make his child support payments according to Leveridge. He said that he recommended that Brumley be placed on pretrial diversion and allowed to remain out of prison so he can provide the support his children need and make up on the payments he has missed in the past.
Leveridge added that his status is conditioned upon making regular child support payments and making up on missed payments. If Brumley fails to make the payments, he faces up to 5 years in prison.
