MOUNT VERNON — According to Knox County Prosecutor John Thatcher, on Friday, in the Knox County Court of Common Pleas, Judge Otho Eyster sentenced three men for various felony crimes.
Ryan L. Shock, 32, Fredericktown, was convicted of felonious assault for causing serious physical harm to his 24-year-old girlfriend in their apartment on Jan. 1. Eyster sentenced Shock to four years in prison. Patrolman Beau Ayers, Fredericktown Police Department, responded to the call and investigated the case.
On Sept. 19, 2008, Scott A. Wilson, 32, Mount Vernon, was convicted of nonsupport of dependents and theft, and his 11-month concurrent prison sentences suspended while he served a three-year term of community control supervision. According to Thatcher, Wilson’s concurrent 11-month prison sentences were imposed Friday as the result of his admission that he violated his supervision terms by not paying child support as ordered to do so, and for not complying with other terms of his supervision.
Robert O. Alberts Jr., 46, Danville, was convicted of aggravated trafficking in drugs for selling illegally diverted Percocet to an undercover informant working for the Danville Police Department on Sept. 5, 2008. Eyster sentenced Alberts to a three-year term of community control supervision, along with 30 days in the Knox County Jail, and ordered Alberts to complete a drug and alcohol assessment.
Thatcher said Alberts will serve a 17-month prison term if he violates the terms of his community control supervision. The investigation was conducted by Sgt. Tom Looney, Danville Police Department, with the assistance of Detective Sgt. Jeff Jacobs, Detective Cpl. Matt Dailey and Detective Craig Feeney, Mount Vernon Police Department, and special agents from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
