Placeholder Image

Sentences were handed down recently by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley, including a suspended sentence for a woman who stole thousands from her employer.
The woman, Martha McKinley, was granted a four-year judicial diversion on the charge of felony theft. She was directed to make $4,021 restitution and perform 100 hours public service work. Her record will be erased provided she completes her probation without a problem.
Her charges come after she took money from Auto Zone where she was employed. The thefts happened over a period of time and were eventually caught by management.

• Britton Cantrell was granted a judicial diversion and must perform 100 hours public service work for statutory rape.
