A Greenfield man is serving 120 days in jail after appearing on a bench warrant Monday in Hillsboro Municipal Court.
Court records showed that Brendan Patrick, 30, was convicted on two separate charges in 2013, for first-degree misdemeanor drug abuse and fourth-degree misdemeanor trespassing.
On the drug abuse case, 120 days of a 180-day jail sentence were suspended. Patrick was furloughed until September of 2013. He was placed on reporting probation and ordered to obtain counseling. Records added that a 30-day jail sentence was suspended on Patrick’s trespassing case.
According to records, Patrick appeared on a bench warrant in October 2013. The 60 days in jail were imposed. He could be furloughed in November.
Since then, three other warrants have been issued for Patrick’s arrest, records show. The warrant Patrick appeared on Monday was issued in May 2014 after he failed to appear for a review hearing.
On Monday, Patrick was found guilty of a probation violation. A 120-day jail sentence began on Friday.
Jail was also imposed for Edward Phillips, 36, Galloway. On Monday, he pled no contest to first-degree misdemeanor theft.
According to records, he was found guilty and all but 30 days of a 180-day jail sentence were suspended. He will be furloughed on Sept. 25. A $1,000 fine was also suspended. Phillips was ordered to have no contact with Walmart.
Phillips was also placed on reporting probation. Records added that his “probation (will be) waived if (he) does not live in Highland (County).”
Jail time was also imposed for Sharon Barber, 48, Greenfield. She appeared on a bench warrant Monday that was issued in June of last year.
According to records, Barber pled guilty in 2013 to fourth-degree misdemeanor possession of drug abuse instruments. A 30-day jail sentence was suspended at that time. Barber was ordered to obtain an assessment at FRS as well as any recommended counseling.
Records show that Monday’s warrant is the second that has been issued for Barber’s arrest since her conviction.
A 10-day probation violation from October 2013 was imposed on Monday, according to records. Barber was also found guilty of a new violation, with an additional 20 days set for December.
