By Calen McKinney

A Louisville man has been sentenced to five years in prison after violating the terms of his shock probation.

Joseph "Joe" Quinten Seadler III, 24, of 1047 E. Kentucky St. appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George on Tuesday, Oct. 23.

In April 2006, Seadler pleaded guilty in two separate cases to facilitation to commit first-degree robbery and six counts of third-degree burglary. Two second-degree persistent felony offender charges were dismissed. He originally faced a first-degree robbery charge.

A month later, Seadler was sentenced to five years in prison.

However, in August 2006, Seadler was granted shock probation, though that was revoked because he tested positive for drug use. He was given credit for 23 days he has already served.

The charges against Seadler stem from a week-long string of burglaries and break-ins that struck 10 local businesses and one home

Court records also list Seadler's address as 279 Lincoln Ave. and 323 Bell Court, both in Campbellsville.

Also on George's docket:

- Donetta Ford, 38, of 419 N. Jackson St. in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to first-degree selling cocaine and possession of drug supplies, her second offense.

Ford was granted a five-year pretrial diversion. If she fails the terms of her diversion, Ford will be sentenced to five years in prison. Her case is set for final disposition Oct. 16, 2012.

- Moneda Lynn Frank, 29, of 550 Old Pittman Road in Campbellsville was sentenced to five years' probation on a drug charge.

In August, Frank pleaded guilty to second-degree selling hydrocodone. A first-degree persistent felony offender charged was dismissed.

She was ordered to pay $50 in restitution to the Campbellsville Police Department. Court records also list Frank's address as 808 Fairground Road in Campbellsville and 808 Fairground Road in Lebanon.

- George Junior Gribbins II, 24, of 710 Rockford St. in Campbellsville was sentenced to 10 years' probation on drug charges in two separate cases.

In August, Gribbins pleaded guilty in one case to first-degree possession of cocaine, possession of drug supplies, his second offense, and possession of less than 8 ounces of marijuana. He originally faced a charge of selling cocaine. Charges of third-degree selling a controlled substance within 1,000 yards of a school and first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor were dismissed.

At that time, Gribbins was sentenced to two years' probation.

At his most recent court appearance, Gribbins was sentenced to five years' probation to be served at the same time as his two-year probation sentence and ordered to attend a substance abuse treatment program and follow the program's treatment recommendations.

In his other case, Gribbins had his diversion voided and was sentenced to an additional five years' probation to be served after he completes his probation in his other case.

Gribbins pleaded guilty in that case in May 2005 to selling marijuana within 1,000 yards of a school, possession of drug supplies and possession of cocaine.

At that time, he was granted a four-year pretrial diversion and sentenced to two years' probation. He agreed to forfeit $179 that was being held as evidence to the Campbellsville Police Department Drug Elimination Fund. If he failed the terms of his diversion, Gribbins was to be sentenced to three years in prison.

Gribbins' diversion was voided because he faced new charges in his other case. Court records also list his address as 930 Bradfordsville Road in Campbellsville.

- Jeremiah Vernon Carter Roddy, 24, of 219 Eads St. in Campbellsville was sentenced to five years' probation on drug charges.

In August, Roddy pleaded guilty in three separate cases to three counts of selling less than 5 pounds of marijuana.

Roddy was ordered to pay $1,800 in restitution to the Campbellsville Police Department and forfeit a vehicle and other items currently being held as evidence.

- Jeffrey Michael Routin, 41, of 312 Fuller Harding Road in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a forged check. He originally faced a second-degree charge.

Routin was sentenced to two years' probation and ordered to pay $100 in restitution to Jr. Food Store.

Court records also list his address as 1069 Joe Kerr Road in Campbellsville.

- John Thomas Runion, 26, of 154 Ridge View Drive in Liberty completed the terms of his diversion and had wanton endangerment and other charges against him dismissed.

In February 2005, Runion pleaded guilty to first-degree fleeing or evading police, three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, reckless driving and speeding. At that time, Runion was granted a three-year pretrial diversion.

- Joshua Carlton Thompson, 23, of 167 Honeysuckle Lane in Campbellsville was sentenced to three years in prison for violating the terms of his diversion.

In December 2006, Thompson pleaded guilty in two separate cases to 18 counts of second-degree criminal possession of forged checks.

At that time, Thompson was granted a five-year pretrial diversion and ordered to pay $515 in restitution. If he failed the terms of his diversion, Thompson was to be sentenced to three years in prison.

Thompson's diversion was voided in September because he has since been charged with DUI and possession of marijuana in Taylor District Court.

He is to serve his sentence at the same time as a sentence in a Green County case and was given credit for 180 days he has already served.

- Donald Owen Walker, 29, of 123 Wexford Place in Campbellsville pleaded guilty to DUI, his third offense, and driving on a license suspended for DUI. He originally faced a second offense charge of driving on a license suspended for DUI. A charge of driving illegally on the left side of the road was dismissed.

Walker was sentenced to two years' probation and ordered to serve 60 days in jail and have his license suspended for 24 months.
