Circuit court

Several cases were heard Thursday in Columbia County Circuit Court.

Circuit Judge David W. Talley Jr. handled down some sentences Thursday during the twice monthly criminal docket at the Columbia County Justice and Criminal Detention Facility.

However, most of the docket was spent rescheduling client’s cases for future dates so that more information would be available for their cases.

Jerry Tippitt was sentenced to five years of probation and required to complete the River Ridge Treatment Center for drugs after pleading guilty to May 5, 2019 possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Darius Jamerson plead guilty to aggravated assault on April 19, 2019 and admitted he pulled a knife on man named Justin McLeod. He was sentenced to five years’ probation and as part of that was ordered not to be around McLeod.

Lori Callison plead guilty to breaking into two vehicles on December 20, 2018. One car was in front of Wee Care Day Care at Central Baptist Church and the other was in front of the Magnolia Feed Store. She took a wallet from the car in front of Wee Care Day Care.

Talley asked Callison if she knew the owners of these vehicles and why she had selected them. She said she did not but that she is schizophrenic and that voices had instructed her which cars to select.

Callison was given five years’ probation and must follow up for after-care with South Arkansas Regional Health Center in Magnolia.

Talley warned Callison that if she broke her probation she could be looking at up to 16 years of prison time for any other crime she commits.

“Follow up with the mental health center,” Talley said. “I think I have done all I can to encourage you to do what is good for you.”

Robert Bedwell plead guilty to possessing steroids and needles without a prescription on February 26, 2019. He was given five years’ probation and told he will have to complete a substance abuse program if he goes to the Arkansas Community Correction for other charges. Restitution charges are not expected but that will depend on what Bedwell’s grandmother decides if her property was damaged in an incident.
