Friday June 4th, Deputies with the Sheridan County Sheriff's Office made multiple arrests at a shop party on Bowie Road in Sheridan. The bulk of the citations that were given out were for Minor in Possession, as 24 minors were cited. Eleven of those minors appeared in Circuit Court before Judge Sampson Monday afternoon, with all of them pleading guilty to their charge.
Judge Sampson referred the majority of the minors to the Sheridan County Juvenile Justice Diversion program, where they received 3 months of unsupervised probation, 3 months of supervised probation and 15 hours of community service to be completed within the next 30 days. If the minors abide by the terms of their probation and do not get into any trouble over the next six months, Sampson agreed to have the charges dismissed. Of the eleven that appeared in Court, 20-year-old Jeffrey Morgan was the only who received jail time, as he was sentenced to 10 days in jail due to the fact that it was his third offense. The remainder of the minors will appear in Circuit Court Tuesday afternoon.
22-year-old Anthony Donlon and his sister 18-year-old Amanda Donlon each plead guilty last week to the charge of Permitting a House Party Where Minors are Present. Amanda Donlon received 20 days in jail with 17 days suspended and credit for time served on three days. She also received $230 in fines, and or court costs. Anthony Donlon received the same sentence as his sister; however his jail sentence wasn't suspended, as he was ordered to serve the 17 days.
