Two Sentenced For Probation Violations

During the January Circuit Court Law Day, two defendants were sentenced to the Missouri Department of Corrections, according to information released this week by the office of Prosecuting Attorney Chris Wade.

Cory Turney, 22, of Mansfield, received a three-year sentence for possession of methamphetamine after his probation was revoked by the court. Turney admitted to violating his probation by not reporting to his probation officer as directed.

The offense occurred in March of 2013 and was investigated by the Ava Police Department.

Cassie Mincks, 27, of Mansfield, was ordered by the court to serve a 120 day shock incarceration based on violation reports from Probation and Parole. Mincks is on probation for tampering with a motor vehicle, 1st degree.

Once the incarceration is completed, Mincks will continue on supervised probation.
