Seven sentenced to probation in circuit court

Oct. 21, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A woman is among seven defendants serving probation after each entered guilty pleas before Cabell Circuit Judge Alfred Ferguson. The unrelated cases concern various charges.

Cynthia Allison received five years probation and orders to pay $51,820 in restitution. The punishment stems from an earlier guilty plea to felony embezzlement. Restitution will be divided with $49,320 allocated to Travelers Insurance and $2,500 to Foodfair.

Probation was ordered once Ferguson agreed to suspend a one- to 10-year prison sentence. Allison agreed to enter her plea without a grand jury indictment.

Other cases are as follows. Defendant addresses and ages were unavailable in some cases.

Stolen property case nets two years

Jessica Thompson received two years probation, after the judge suspended a two-year sentence behind bars.

Thompson, of the 4200 block of 16th Street Road in Huntington, had pleaded guilty to one count of transferring stolen property. A March 2012 indictment initially charged Thompson with three counts of transferring stolen property and two counts of burglary, along with single counts of grand and petit larceny.

One year probation in drug case

William Richard Faulknier received one year probation after the judge agreed to suspend a 90-day jail sentence. Faulknier had pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. He agreed to enter the plea without a grand jury indictment.

Fraud case nets probation

Thomas W. Jackson received four years probation after the judge suspended a 10-year prison sentence.

Jackson, of Huntington's 200 block of 28th Street and 2400 block 9th Avenue, had pleaded guilty to fraudulent use of an access device. A March 2012 indictment initially charged Jackson with 14 counts of fraudulent use of an access device.

Probation ordered with reduced charge

Jamie Berea Mathis Johnson received three years probation after the judge suspended a one- to three-year prison sentence. The punishment also requires Johnson to pay restitution to Macy's.
