A Campbellsville man accused of robbery has had a charge against him dismissed.

Cory J. Gadberry, 30, of 100 Buttercup Lane appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George on Monday, Jan. 14.

George's court proceedings were originally scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 8. They were rescheduled to Jan. 14.

According to court records, a first-degree robbery charge against Gadberry was dismissed without prejudice because a witness in the case is unavailable for court proceedings.

According to Black's Law Dictionary, when charges are dismissed "without prejudice," the plaintiff can re-file the same charges against the defendant.

Though the robbery charge was dismissed, Gadberry pleaded guilty to a remaining third-offense DUI charge.

Gadberry was sentenced to serve 30 days in jail, pay a $1,000 fine, attend an alcohol and drug education course and have his license suspended for 24 months. He was given credit for time he has already served.

Also on George's docket:

- Robert Ray Bottom, 43, of 517 Walling Ave. in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to first-degree wanton endangerment and DUI.

Bottom was granted a three-year pretrial diversion. If he fails the terms of his diversion, Bottom will be sentenced to two years in prison.

He was also ordered to pay a $200 fine, attend an alcohol and drug education course and have his license suspended for 90 days. His case is set for review Jan. 4, 2011.

- Shawnta Renee Wilson aka Shanita Renee Wilson, 25, of 224 Lincoln Ave. in Campbellsville was sentenced to five years' probation on drug and other charges.
