A jail sentence was scheduled for a Hillsboro man appearing on a bench warrant in the Hillsboro Municipal Court on Wednesday.

The Times-Gazette previously reported that Robert Childers, 25, entered an agreement in July. He pled guilty to an amended and reduced charge of attempting to resist arrest, a third-degree misdemeanor.

A 60-day jail sentence was suspended on the conditions that Childers pay half of a $500 fine and perform 60 hours of community service, court records showed. He was placed under the supervision of the probation department until his service was complete.

According to records, a warrant was issued for Childers’ arrest last month after an affidavit was filed by the probation department.

On Wednesday, Childers appeared on that warrant. He was found guilty of a probation violation. A 10-day jail sentence is set to be reviewed in November.

He was again ordered to perform 60 hours of community service. Childers must also pay court costs, records added.

Also appearing on a bench warrant was Miranda Smith, 31, Hillsboro. Records showed that she failed to appear for an arraignment on Monday. She is charged with second-degree misdemeanor possession of drug abuse instruments.

Her bond is set at $1,000. While her case is pending, Smith must observe a curfew. She was also ordered to enroll in substance abuse counseling. A pretrial is set for Sept. 18.
