Hillsboro man sentenced to jail


A Hillsboro man appearing on a bench warrant Wednesday in Hillsboro Municipal Court was found guilty of a probation violation and sentenced to jail.

According to court records, John Croy, 46, pled no contest to first-degree misdemeanor theft in April. He was found guilty and a 90-day jail sentence was suspended on the condition that he perform 50 hours of community service and pay $340 in restitution. A $1,000 fine was suspended.

Croy was placed on reporting probation until his community service is complete.

In August, a warrant was issued for Croy’s arrest after an affidavit was filed by the probation department, records show.

He appeared on that warrant Wednesday and a 45-day jail sentence was imposed on a probation violation. That time began on Tuesday. Croy will be furloughed on Friday. He must return to court in December, records add.

In other cases, a bond was set for a Nicole Hauptman, 27, Hillsboro, who appeared on both a bench warrant and a new charge.

A warrant was issued for Hauptman’s arrest last April after the probation department filed an affidavit with the court, according to records. She was previously found guilty of theft in 2012. Since that time, a 90-day jail sentence was imposed and later furloughed.

A $5,000 cash or surety bond was set on that case Wednesday, records show. She is ordered to have no contact with a reportedly involved party. Records add that if Hauptman posts her bond, she must “report to the (probation department) immediately.”

Hauptman was also arraigned on first-degree misdemeanor receiving stolen property. The charge was first filed with the court last September, according to records. A pretrial is set for Nov. 13.

A probation violation hearing is also scheduled for that time on a February 2014 conviction for theft, records add.

Also appearing on a bench warrant was Devon Lansing, 23, Wilmington.

He was convicted of theft in 2013, according to records. Since then, jail time has been imposed and furloughed. Wednesday’s warrant was the fourth that had been issued since Lansing’s conviction, records show.

Records add that his most recent warrant was for failure to comply with the probation department.

Lansing must “post bond in the amount of $7,500 cash or surety,” records state. He must also observe a curfew and report to the probation department.

Lansing’s case is set for a probation violation hearing on Nov. 16, records add.

A bond was also set for Cora Cox, 33, Hillsboro. She appeared on a charge of theft, according to records. A pretrial is set for next month.

Cox must post a $1,000 cash or surety bond. She is ordered to have no contact with reportedly involved parties.

Records added that as of Wednesday Cox had served out her sentence on an April conviction for second-degree misdemeanor possession of drug abuse instruments.

A $1,000 bond was also set for Ashley Landrum, 25, Greenfield. She is charged with second-degree misdemeanor attempted illegal purchase of pseudoephedrine.

Records state that Landrum will be released on her own recognizance “with a negative drug screen within 24 hours.”

A pretrial is set for next month. While her case is pending, Landrum is to have no contact with Walgreens. She is also prohibited from driving, records add.
