Four sentenced to prison during Wednesday's Law Day

Friday, September 6, 2013

BLOOMFIELD, Mo. -- The most recent Stoddard County Law Day, Wednesday, Sept. 4, saw a total of seven people sentenced to prison.

The first and third Wednesdays of each month are set aside for Law Day during which felony cases are taken up before Presiding Judge Robert Mayer.

Following is a complete list of all prison sentences from Stoddard County Prosecuting Attorney Russell Oliver. They combine for up to 34 years in prison.

* Robert E. David, III, having previously pled guilty to second-degree burglary as a prior and persistent offender, appeared for sentencing. Because no plea agreement was in place, sentencing was left in the hands of Judge Mayer. After arguments from both sides, Davis was ordered to serve 10 years in the Missouri Dept. of Corrections.

* Thomas Lubish, having previously pled guilty to stealing a motor vehicle as a prior and persistent felony offender, appeared for sentencing. Because no plea agreement was in place, sentencing was left in the hands of Judge Mayer. After arguments from both sides, Lubish was ordered to serve 10 years in the Missouri Dept. of Corrections. Due to having been sentenced to prison on multiple occasions, he is required to serve at least 80 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.

* Todd Tolbert appeared and pled guilty to the Class B felony of DWI-chronic offender. He was sentenced to seven years in the Missouri Dept. of Corrections. Due to his status as a chronic DWI offender, Lubish, by statute, is ineligible for parole for at least two years.

* Thomas Wilson, having been placed on probation for the Class B felony of distribution of a controlled substance on Dec. 7, 2011, was recently picked up for a probation violation. He appeared Wednesday and admitted his violation. He was ordered to serve seven years in the Missouri Dept. of Corrections.

The next law day will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013.
