Residents sentenced in court on drug charges
Trials set in felony child abuse case.
Two Gothenburg residents, charged with delivering or attempting to deliver controlled substances, were recently sentenced in Dawson County District Court.
On Nov. 10, Dustin Amack received 36 months probation and 30 days in jail plus costs.
Amack pleaded no contest to the charges in September.
On Nov. 7, Robert “Stan” Jordan was charged with two counts of delivery or intent to deliver a controlled substance (marijuana).
Jordan was sentenced to 40 months probation with the possibility of 180 days of jail at the end of his sentence.
He pleaded no contest to the charges in September.
The residents were among 23 arrested Feb. 15 and 16 by Cooperative Operation for Drug Enforcement task force members.
In other court action, dates have been set for jury trials for two Gothenburg residents charged with child abuse resulting in death.
Court officials said Adam Jesseph will have a jury trial that begins Dec. 13 unless a plea is entered or issues with trial readiness come up during a hearing on Dec. 2.
A trial for Doris Herrin is set for Jan. 17 unless she pleads or certificate of readiness issues happen during a hearing on Jan. 6.
Herrin’s 3 year-old daughter died in December of 2010. Medical officials said that massive hemorrhaging of the brain was consistent with shaking in a violent manner.
Jesseph was Herrin’s boyfriend at the time of the death and both were charged in the death.
