Snapshot: Pitts. Co. felony case filings in June


McALESTER — The Outcome - June 2012

Due to the fact that felony cases in June 2013 are new filings, the outcomes of those cases could not be determined. However, the News-Capital checked the final outcome of the felony case filings in June 2012 and here is what was found:

• There were 12 felony charges and/or cases dismissed. One of these dismissals occurred after the cases were refiled as misdemeanors.

• There were 10 felony charges or cases that defendants pleaded guilty or no contest and sentencing was deferred.

• There were 11 felony charges or cases that defendants pleaded guilty or no contest and received suspended sentencing.

• Eight of the felony cases in June 2012 are still pending. Four are theft cases, two are drug cases, one is a child crime and drug case and one is an assault / inmate crime case.

• Six of the June 2012 defendants were ordered to complete District 18 Drug Court. These all occurred in drug cases and in one of those cases the defendant was also charged with felony crime against a child. Typically, if drug court is successfully completed, the charges are dismissed. However, if drug court is not successfully completed, the defendant is sentenced to serve prison time.

• There were eight felony charges or cases in June 2012 in which defendants pleaded guilty and received prison or jail time.

1) One was sentenced to seven years.

2) One was sentenced to 10 years, with the last three years suspended.

3) One was sentenced to 20 years, with the last 15 years suspended.
