BLOOMFIELD, Mo. -- Seven people were sentenced to prison during the most recent Stoddard County law Day, according to Prosecuting Attorney Russell Oliver.

The following appeared:

Keith Frankum pled guilty to the Class C felony of stealing and the Class C felony of possession of a controlled substance on Feb. 2. No plea bargain was made for his sentence, so he appeared on March 2 for sentencing. Frankum was ordered to serve six years in prison for each charge. The sentences will run concurrently.

Carol Cochran appeared and pled guilty to the Class C felony of possession of precursor ingredients with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine. She was sentenced to serve seven years in prison.

Rickey Nelson appeared for a probation revocation hearing and had his probation revoked. He will serve seven years in prison for the Class C felony of DWI-aggravated offender.

Mindy Pearl appeared and pled guilty to the Class C felony of burglary and was sentenced to serve four years in prison. Her co-defendant, Robert E. Davis, Jr., is scheduled for preliminary hearing this Thursday, March 10.

Logan Wilson appeared for a probation revocation hearing and had his probation revoked. He was sentenced to serve five years in prison for two counts of the Class C felony of second-degree burglary. The court also ordered that the sentence be made pursuant to Chapter 217 R.S. Mo. Wilson will also be entered into the long-term treatment program.

Jason Simmons appeared and pled guilty to the Class C felony of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance (marijuana) and was sentenced to serve four years in prison.

Gary Reddick appeared and pled guilty to the Class C felony of endangering the welfare of a child (first degree). No plea bargain was made concerning the defendant's sentence. A Sentencing Assessment Report was ordered and sentencing is scheduled for April 6, 2011.

Steven Bowers appeared and plead guilty to the Class C felony of possession of a controlled substance. No plea bargain was made concerning the defendant's sentence. A Sentencing Assessment Report was ordered and sentencing was scheduled for April 6, 2011.

Kenneth Johnson, Jr. is charged with three counts of the Class C felony of burglary and three counts of the Class C felony of stealing and one count of the Class C felony of receiving stolen property. Johnson appeared and was scheduled to stand trial on June 7, 2011.

David Seabaugh is charged with the Class B felony of DWI-Chronic Offender (four or more prior DWI convictions). Seabaugh appeared and was scheduled to stand trial on June 21, 2011.

Fred Sawyer appeared and pled guilty to the Class D felony of DWI- Persistent Offender (two prior DWI convictions). Pursuant to a plea agreement made by the previous prosecuting attorney, Sawyer has served 120 days in the Stoddard County Jail. Due to his reliance on the plea agreement made by the previous prosecutor, the state honored the plea agreement and the court sentenced him to four years in prison, with credit for the 120 days previously served, and the court suspended execution of the remainder of that sentence and placed Defendant on five years of supervised probation

Josh Williams and Derrick Paul Caldwell pled guilty to two counts of the Class C felony of stealing. Due to the Defendants' young age, neither having any criminal history, and other mitigating factors, the State agreed to recommend that the Court suspend imposition of sentence on each count for both defendants. The Court followed the recommendation and suspended the imposition of sentence and placed bothd defendants on five years of supervised probation with full restitution to the victims. Should either defendant violate the terms of his probation, he would face the possibility of 14 years in prison.
