-A A +A
By Calen McKinney

A Louisville man has had his diversion revoked and will spend two years in prison on drug and other charges.

Timothy John Greene, 25, of 6502 Six Mile Lane in Louisville appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Allan Bertram on Tuesday, Nov. 20.

In October 2006, Greene pleaded guilty to first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than 8 ounces of marijuana, DUI, having an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle and driving on a suspended license.

Charges of failure to notify an address change to the Department of Transportation, having one headlight and two counts of failure to wear a seat belt were dismissed.

A month later, Greene was granted a three-year pretrial diversion, sentenced to serve 90 days in jail and two years' probation, and ordered to pay a $200 fine. He was also to have his license suspended for 30 days and attend an alcohol and drug education course. If he failed the terms of his diversion, the prosecutor recommended that Greene be sentenced to two years in prison.

Greene's diversion was revoked because he has since been convicted of crimes in Jefferson and Washington counties and has avoided his probation officers.

Also on Bertram's docket:

- Maria Lynette Muhammad, 34, of 117 Abbey Court in Campbellsville was sentenced to four years in prison on criminal possession charges.

In October, Muhammad pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree criminal possession of forged checks. Eight counts were dismissed.

Muhammad is to serve her sentence after she completes a sentence in a Green County case. She was ordered to pay $252.60 in restitution and was given credit for 180 days she has already served.

Court records also list her address as 117 Abbey Court in Elizabethtown.

- Tony M. Wooldridge, 48, of 255 Taylors Chapel Road in Summersville completed the terms of his diversion and had drug and other charges against him dismissed.

In November 2004, Wooldridge pleaded guilty to first-degree possession of cocaine and DUI, his second offense.

Charges of possessing drug supplies, failure to illuminate headlamps, possession of marijuana and second-degree possession of Lortab were dismissed.

At that time, Wooldridge was granted a three-year pretrial diversion, ordered to serve seven days in jail, pay a $350 fine, attend an alcohol and drug education course and have his license suspended for 12 months.

Court records also list Wooldridge's address as 242 Taylors Chapel Road in Summersville.

- Trevis Ray Bell, 25, of 405 Underwood St. in Campbellsville pleaded guilty in two separate cases to first-degree possession of cocaine, possession of less than 8 ounces of marijuana, DUI, having an open alcoholic beverage in a vehicle, speeding, first-degree wanton endangerment and DUI.

The prosecutor has recommended that Bell receive a three-year sentence. In exchange for his guilty plea, the prosecutor has agreed not to revoke a sentence Bell has received in another separate case. However, the prosecutor has stated that if Bell receives a probated sentence, and he violates the terms of that sentence, he will be sentenced to serve three years in prison.

Formal sentencing in both of Bell's cases is set for Jan. 22.

- Robert Dale Burton Jr., 21, of 703 Cottage Court in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to receiving more than $300 in stolen property, public intoxication and second-degree fleeing or evading police.

Burton was sentenced to two years' probation on the misdemeanor public intoxication and fleeing police charges.

The prosecutor has recommended that Burton be granted a five-year pretrial diversion on his felony stolen property charge. If he fails the terms of his diversion, the prosecutor has recommended that Burton be sentenced to three years in prison. Formal sentencing is set for Feb. 5.

- Joseph "Jody" Doyle Cox, 40, of 210 Eads St. in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to growing more than five marijuana plants.

The prosecutor has recommended that Cox be granted a five-year pretrial diversion. If he fails the terms of his diversion, the prosecutor has recommended that Cox be sentenced to five years in prison.

Formal sentencing is set for Feb. 5.

- Bobby W. Gilbert, 48, of 102 Chestnut St. in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to DUI, his fourth offense, and driving on a suspended license.

Charges of driving from side to side of a highway and being a first-degree persistent felony offender were dismissed.

The prosecutor has recommended that Gilbert be sentenced to serve 120 days in jail. Formal sentencing is set for Jan. 22.

- Ryan O'Neal Johnson, 26, of 209 S. Court St. in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to facilitation to commit criminal syndication, four counts of first-degree selling cocaine and being a first-degree persistent felony offender. He originally faced a charge of criminal syndication.

The prosecutor has recommended that Johnson be sentenced to serve 15 years in prison and pay $1,650 in restitution to the Campbellsville Police Department Drug Elimination Fund. Formal sentencing is set for Feb. 5.

Johnson's co-defendants - Angela L. Johnson, 21, of 209 S.
