Two defendants received 10-day jail sentences after pleading guilty to their respective charges in the Hillsboro Municipal Court on Monday.

David Barnett, 48, Lynchburg, pled guilty to first-degree misdemeanor operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI). According to court records, 170 days of a 180-day jail sentence were suspended.

Barnett can be furloughed to Clinton County, records added.

Clinton County Municipal Court records showed that Barnett has an active warrant from 2010 on a previous conviction for aggravated trespassing.

On his most recent charge, Barnett’s license was also suspended for six months. He was placed on reporting probation. Records added that Barnett must also obtain counseling, make any restitution, and possess no alcohol. He must pay a $500 fine.

Also according to records, Barnett pled guilty to an accompanying charge of failure to maintain control. A charge for driving on a suspension was dismissed.

Sarah Gadberry, 34, New Vienna, pled guilty to first-degree misdemeanor obstructing official business. All but 10 days of a 60-day jail sentence were suspended. Gadberry can be furloughed with a negative drug screen, records showed. She must pay $100 of a $500 fine.

Gadberry was placed on reporting probation, records added. She must perform 80 hours of community service, stay away from a reportedly involved party, and obtain FRS counseling.

In other cases, a drug screen will determine a furlough for Cierra Trivett, 28, Hillsboro.

Records showed that Trivett was convicted of fourth-degree misdemeanor disorderly conduct in July.

A 30-day jail sentence was suspended and Trivett was fined $250. She was ordered to perform 80 hours of community service.

Last week, a warrant was issued after she allegedly failed to comply, according to records. She appeared on that warrant Monday and was found guilty of a probation violation.

A 30-day jail sentence was imposed. It began when she was taken into custody Sunday. Records added that Trivett can be furloughed on Thursday with a negative drug screen. She must return to court in November.

Also on Monday, Toby Brewer, 34, Wilmington, was found in contempt of court. According to records, he was found guilty of failure to reinstate, an unclassified misdemeanor, in 2014. A $1,000 fine was suspended. His license was also suspended for one year.

Since that time, Brewer has appeared on two warrants. Records stated that the most recent warrant was active for several months because Brewer had “been in prison.”

At that time, he was ordered to work off court costs through community service.

As of Monday, Brewer had “done nothing” since he last appeared in court, records stated. A 10-day jail sentence was imposed, with $50 per day in jail to be applied to his court costs. That time is set to begin in November. Brewer’s license was also forfeited, records added.

A jail sentence was also scheduled for Angela Lavan, 44, Peebles.

Lavan entered an agreement in April on a charge of receiving stolen property, as previously reported by The Times-Gazette. She pled guilty to an amended and reduced charge of unauthorized use of property, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

A 30-day jail sentence was suspended on the condition that she perform community service, pay restitution, and pay a $100 fine.

On Monday, she was found guilty of a probation violation, records showed. A 15-day jail sentence is set for October.

Susan Moore, 27, Hillsboro, appeared on a bench warrant that was issued after she failed to appear for a review hearing last week. The Times-Gazette previously reported that Moore entered an agreement last year and was convicted of fourth-degree misdemeanor reckless operation.

On Monday, she was found guilty of a probation violation, and a three-day jail sentence was imposed.

A $1,000 bond was set for Jack Little Jr., 38, Hillsboro. If he passes a drug screen, he can be released on his own recognizance, according to records.

Little is charged with fourth-degree misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. A pretrial is set for late September. While Little’s case is pending, he must observe a curfew. He is prohibited from driving.

A $7,500 bench warrant was issued for Freddy Deer, 41, Lynchburg, after he failed to appear for a review hearing. Records showed that Deer was previously convicted of first-degree misdemeanor driving on a suspension.

Jerry Harner, 45, Leesburg, also failed to appear for a review. He was previously convicted of fourth-degree misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to records. A $7,500 bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

Finally, Miranda Smith, 31, Hillsboro, failed to appear for an arraignment on a charge of second-degree misdemeanor possession of drug abuse instruments. A $1,000 bench warrant was issued for her arrest.
