By Calen McKinney

A Campbellsville man has had his probation revoked and will spend a year in jail for his crimes.

Dennis Calvin Haulk Jr., 25, of 216 Bell Ave. appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George on Tuesday, July 22.

In May, Haulk pleaded guilty to receiving more than $300 in stolen property. A criminal syndication charge was dismissed.

A month later, Haulk was sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to jointly pay $5,027.03 in restitution with four co-defendants.

The five were indicted by a Taylor County grand jury in February 2007.

The charges stem from the December 2006 burglary of G&S Automotive Sales in which the defendants broke into a back window and stole a safe containing $3,500 in cash and a handgun.

Haulk's co-defendants Joseph Q. Seadler, Megan Michelle Wise, Timothy Wayne Crum and Kimberly Lynn Carney have also pleaded guilty to charges against them and been sentenced.

Haulk's probation was revoked because he tested positive for drug use. He was given credit for 55 days he has already served.

Court records also list his address as Towne Motel, 426 Kenny St., 385 Smith Chapel Road and 136 Loyal Ave., all in Campbellsville.

Also on George's docket:

- Ladovrick Vernole Brown Sr., 35, of 317 Clem Haskins Blvd. in Campbellsville was sentenced to three years in prison for violating the terms of his probation in two separate cases.

In May 2007, Brown pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault, his third offense, and two counts of third-degree terroristic threatening. A first-degree persistent felony offender charge was dismissed. At that time, Brown was sentenced to two years' probation on the terroristic threatening charges.

In his other case, Brown pleaded guilty in September 2007 to first-degree bail jumping. A charge of being a first-degree persistent felony offender was dismissed. At that time, Brown was sentenced to three years' probation for charges in both of his cases.

Brown's probation was revoked because he failed to report to the probation and parole office. He was given credit for 141 days he has already served.

Court records also list his address as 217 N. 29th St. in Louisville.

- Saundra Michelle Johnson Freedman, 29, of 532 Bellow Mill Road in Harrodsburg pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal possession of a forged check. A charge of being a first-degree persistent felony offender was dismissed.

The prosecutor has recommended that Freedman be sentenced to three years' probation. Formal sentencing is set for Sept. 16.

Court records state she has paid restitution. Records also list Freedman's address as 1607 W. Broadway in Campbellsville.

- Justin Wayne Keith, 21, of 240 Jan St. in Campbellsville was sentenced to three years' probation on burglary and other charges.

In June, Keith pleaded guilty in two separate cases to third-degree burglary, first-degree fleeing or evading police and receiving more than $300 in stolen property. Charges of failure to signal and an additional charge of first-degree fleeing or evading police were dismissed.

Keith was referred to the Taylor County Drug Court, however, he has since been found ineligible for the program.

He was ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution to Central Kentucky Hardwoods. Keith's sentence is to be completed after he completes any other sentences he may be serving.

Keith's co-defendant, Chris Reynolds, 22, c/o Marion County Detention Center in Lebanon, faces a third-degree burglary charge. His case is set for review Tuesday, Aug. 5. He is scheduled to face a jury Monday, Aug. 25.

- Mitchell Lee Strong, 50, of 601 E. First St., Apt. A, in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree selling cocaine in two separate cases.

He originally faced two second- offense cocaine charges. Two second-degree persistent felony offender charges were dismissed.

The prosecutor has recommended that Strong receive a seven-year sentence and pay $80 in restitution to the Campbellsville Police Department Drug Elimination Fund. He was referred to the Taylor County Drug Court program.

Formal sentencing is set for Sept. 16.

- Yolanda Taylor York, 30, of 4876 Edmonton Road in Greensburg pleaded guilty to facilitation to commit tampering with physical evidence. She originally faced a tampering with physical evidence charge.

York was sentenced to two years' probation at the request of probation and parole officers. According to court records, York attempted to tamper with a drug test.

On Judge Allan Bertram's docket:

- Carl Michael Wilson, 58, of 42 Milder Creek Road in Campbellsville completed the terms of his diversion and had a drug charge against him dismissed.
