On Senior Status Judge Doughlas M. George's April 7 docket:

Last June, Keith pleaded guilty in two other cases to third-degree burglary, first-degree fleeing or evading police and receiving more than $300 in stolen property. An additional count of first-degree fleeing or evading police and a charge of failure to signal were dismissed.

A month later, Keith was sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution to Central Kentucky Hardwood. He was also referred to the Taylor County Drug Court, but has since been found ineligible for the program.

Keith's probation was revoked because he has failed to complete treatment. He was given credit for 258 days he has already served.
