More than 70 names were on Judge Charles E. Clawson’s Van Buren County Circuit Court docket Thursday.
Most of the cases were continued into next year, but some were brought to a resolution. Those included:
• Jerry D. Hausler was sentenced to 36 months probation after being charged with failure to register as a sex offender or report a change of address. He also was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine, and must abide by all requirements related to registration as a sex offender.
• Gary Mills received 12 months probation after pleading guilty to reduced charges of aggravated assault-first degree, an A misdemeanor, and criminal mischief-second degree, also an A misdemeanor.
• Nicky Bonds received a suspended sentence of 12 months in the county jail and a $1,000 fine. He pleaded guilty to domestic battering-third degree, and a charge of terroristic threatening was nol prossed. Bonds’ wife asked the judge to withdraw a no-contact order against her husband. Clawson lifted the order, though the prosecutor’s office said it did not approve.
• Jamie Leigh Roberts pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia and was sentenced to 36 months of probation. Under Act 346, Roberts’ plea was heard but not accepted, and after successful completion of probation, the case will be dismissed.
