Law and Order in the Ozarks (Part CIII): Six-year sentence for drug conviction

The June 13, 2012 issue of the Newton County Times reports that a 41-year-old man was sentenced to six years following his May conviction for delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), a Class Y felony.  The man, William Bolin, delivered 1.9 grams of methamphetamine in transactions in July 2011.  Those transactions were "controlled by law enforcement."   Bolin's sentence was linked to his plea deal, which dismissed one felony count and amended the remaining count to a charge of possession with purpose to deliver, a class C felony.  Bolin was also fined $1000 and ordered to pay court costs and other fees.

In other matters:
  • A 40-year-old man was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, a Class D felony.  He allegedly rammed with back of a 2000 Chrysler automobile into a 2001 KIA Sportage, occupied by a driver and passenger.  In a plea agreement, the man was sentenced to 36 months of probation and fined $1000 along with court costs and fees.  He must also commit 30 days of community service and have no further contact with the victim. 
  • A 25-year-old woman was charged with a Class Y felony of introduction of a controlled substance into the body of another person.  "According to court information the defendant was breastfeeding her child at the time when she admitted to smoking methamphetamine.  The child was 'drug tested,' and the results revealed that the infant child tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine."  In another case file, the woman, Elizabeth Weiland, was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, a Class A Misdemeanor.  The Class Y felony charge was subsequently dismissed in a nolle prosequi order.  
  • A 26-year old man was charged with criminal attempt to manufacture methamphetamine, a Class A felony; possession of a controlled substance, alprazolam, a Class A misdemeanor; possession fox  controlled substance, hydrocodone, a class D felony and possession of a controlled substance, marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor.  About a year earlier, the man, Christopher Walker "had admitted buying pseudoephedrine for several meth cooks and that he had made some himself.  He had in his possession a pouch continuing several syringes, a small quantity of marijuana, alprazolam and hydrocodone.  The items were seized following a traffic stop by Jasper Police. Officials with the 14th Judicial Drug Task Force intervened in the case."  Pursuant to a plea agreement, the defendant was sentenced to five years probation on each charge, to run concurrently.        
  • A 19-year-old woman was charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine after she acquired 4 grams of pseudo ephedrine, lithium batteries, and cold packs containing ammonium nitrate.  The prosecuting attorney subsequently dropped the charges because he learned that she  was under duress from her co-defendant.  
  • A 44-year-old man was charged with two counts of terroristic threatening after he recorded telephone conversations in which he threatened bodily harm to two individuals.  In a plea deal, the state amended the felony charges to one count of terroristic threatening, and the man was sentenced to a year of probation.  He was also fined $750 along with costs and fees and was ordered to have no further contact with the victim in that case. 
  • A 35-year-old woman was charged with possession of firearms, knowing that she had previously been convicted of a felony.The arrest was made in February 2011 during a home visit by her probation and parole officer.  She pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of possessing an instrument of a crime, a class A misdemeanor, and was sentenced to a year  of probation.
