Judge Bart Stanley ruled on the following cases last week in Circuit Court.


Heather Ann Nicole Comfort was ordered to serve 30 days of a six-year sentence and pay a $2,000 fine for possession of meth with intent to deliver and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number. She was granted a judicial diversion, meaning the charges can be erased if she gets in no further trouble for the next six years.


Getting jail time for violation of probation were Michael Adams (120 days), Rickey Joe Brown (120 days), Josh Keith Graham (60 days), Amanda Judkins (150 days), Amie Rhonda Knight (180 days), Logan Tyler Martin (balance of sentence), Kyle Lee Melson (balance of sentence), and Lisa Diane Minter (120 days).


John Christope Elrod was given 364 days for violation of probation, but he can be furloughed to the Tony Rice center.


Joshua A. Lee was ordered to serve the balance of his sentence for violation of probation, but he can be furloughed to the Tony Rice center.
