The last of six people accused of operating a crime ring to sell cocaine together has been sentenced to five years' probation for her crimes.
Anya Katrina Scott, 30, of 111 Baptist St. in Campbellsville appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Allan Bertram on Tuesday, March 18.
In December, Scott pleaded guilty to facilitation to commit syndication and second-degree selling cocaine. She originally faced charges of criminal syndication and first-degree selling cocaine.
Scott was also ordered to have no contact with her five co-defendants who have all pleaded guilty to crimes against them and been sentenced to probation and prison time.
Ryan O'Neal Johnson, 27, of 209 S. Court St. in Campbellsville was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He was also ordered to pay $1,650 in restitution to the Campbellsville Police Department Drug Elimination Fund.
Juan T. Groves, 28, of 501 Crescent Hill in Campbellsville and Donn Zuaneckk Cecil, 27, of 107 Ray St. in Campbellsville were each sentenced to two years' probation.
Angela Lynn Johnson, 21, of 209 S. Court St. in Campbellsville and Latanja Toneika Groves, 27, whose last known address is 215 Arbor Lane in Campbellsville, were each granted five-year pretrial diversions.
Also on Bertram's Docket:
- Christopher Dale Tucker, 30, of 4760 Saloma Road in Campbellsville pleaded guilty in three separate cases to theft by unlawful taking less than $300 and two counts of second-degree robbery. He originally faced a charge of theft by unlawful taking more than $300. Three first-degree persistent felony offender charges were dismissed.
According to court records, Tucker robbed a Jr. Food store and Marathon gas station and told clerks at both stores he had a weapon.
The prosecutor has recommended that Tucker be sentenced to serve 10 years in prison and pay restitution.
Formal sentencing in all of Tucker's cases is set for April 22. Court records also list his address as 939 Underwood St. in Campbellsville.
- Barbie Ann Denham Petrie, 39, of 122 Arbor Lane in Campbellsville completed the terms of her diversion and had a theft charge against her dismissed.
In May 2004, Petrie pleaded guilty to theft by unlawful taking more than $300. At that time, she was granted a three-year pretrial diversion. If she failed the terms of her diversion, she was to be sentenced to three years in prison.
She was also ordered to pay Bo Smoke's Shop $2,824.98 in restitution.
In March 2006, prosecutors made a motion to revoke Petrie's diversion because she failed to pay restitution. Two months later, Bertram passed on revoking her diversion because she had begun making payments.
In January 2007, prosecutors again made a motion to revoke Petrie's diversion for failure to pay restitution and being convicted of other crimes.
Bertram again passed on revoking Petrie's diversion in February 2007 and extended her diversion for another year last May.
- Walter Berry Bergin, 20, of 301 Duffy St. in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to receiving more than $300 in stolen property.
The prosecutor has recommended that Bergin receive a two-year sentence and be ordered to pay $110 in restitution with additional restitution to be determined at a later date. Formal sentencing is set for April 22.
In another case, Bergin had charges of second-degree criminal possession of forged checks and identity theft dismissed in exchange for his guilty plea in his other case.
- Jesse James Daley, 31, of Albany pleaded guilty to receiving more than $300 in stolen property. A first-degree persistent felony offender charge was dismissed.
Daley was sentenced to serve a year in prison to be served at the same time as a sentence in a Clinton County case. He was also ordered to pay $200 in restitution.
