A Campbellsville man has violated the terms of his diversion and may be sentenced to five years in prison.
Jonathan James Gurley, 19, of 701 S. Columbia Avenue in Campbellsville appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Allan Bertram on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
In December 2006, Gurley pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree possession of cocaine, third-degree possession of lorazepam, failure to dim headlights and illuminate headlights, reckless driving and disregarding a stop sign in two separate cases. He originally faced one second-offense cocaine charge.
Two months later, Gurley was granted a five-year pretrial diversion and sentenced to two years' probation. He was ordered to pay $80 in fines. If he failed the terms of his diversion, Gurley was to be sentenced to five years in prison.
Gurley's diversion was voided because he has since faced and been convicted of other crimes.
In addition to having his diversion voided, Gurley pleaded guilty in two separate cases to fourth-degree assault, first-degree possession of cocaine, tampering with physical evidence, disregarding a stop sign, driving on a suspended license and failure to surrender revoked operator's license. He originally faced charges of selling cocaine and complicity to commit kidnapping, which was amended to the assault charge.
In those cases, the prosecutor has recommended that Gurley receive one- and three-year sentences to be served at the same time as each other but after he completes any revoked sentence he may receive.
Sentencing in all of Gurley's cases is set for Dec. 4.
Court records also list Gurley's address as 2761 Newton Lane, 336 Eve Court, 333 Eve Court and 457 Chaney Pike, all in Campbellsville.

Charges of possession of drug supplies, her second offense, and two counts of being a
second-degree persistent felony offender were dismissed.
The prosecutor has recommended that Raynor receive a two-year sentence. Formal sentencing is set for Dec. 4.
- Michelle Ann Walls Perkins, 41, of 705 N. Jackson St. in Campbellsville had her shock probation revoked for the second time and was sentenced to serve two years in prison.
In March 2006, Perkins pleaded guilty to third-degree assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
At that time, Perkins was sentenced to two years' probation and ordered to serve nine months in jail. Two months later, she was sentenced to serve an additional two years in prison on the assault charge.
In August 2006, Perkins was granted shock probation. That probation, however, was revoked in February because she had been drinking alcohol. At that time, she was again sentenced to two years in prison. Two months later, Perkins was again granted shock probation.
In September, Bertram passed on revoking Perkins' probation because she had arranged to attend treatment.
Bertram revoked Perkins' probation at her most recent court appearance because she has been drinking alcohol, associating with convicted felons and now faces new charges against her.
Perkins was given credit for 47 days she has already served. Court records also
