TWO LOUISVILLE RESIDENTS SENTENCED TO PRISON

(07/31/18)rp

According to Clay County States Attorney Joel Powless, two Louisville residents were sentenced to prison yesterday in Clay County Circuit Court.

35-year-old Charles Dale Workman pled guilty on June 6th, and admitted the allegations of a Petition to Revoke Probation filed against him. He was then set for a sentencing hearing, yesterday, in front of Judge William Robin Todd, for the offense of Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, a class 3 Felony, and for the offense of Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, a class 4 Felony. The Court imposed a sentence of two years and nine months in the Illinois Department of Corrections, followed by a one-year period of mandatory supervised release.

The allegations were that on June 20th, 2017, in Louisville, Workman committed the offense of Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine and that on November 29th, 2017, Workman then committed the offense of Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance. Powless explained that when an individual fails to comply with the terms of probation, and the probationary period is revoked by the Court, the person is then resentenced. The Court may impose any sentence that is provided by statute for that particular class of crime.

Assisting with the investigation and the arrest of Charles Dale Workman were officers of the Clay County Sheriffs Department.

Powless also stated that 31-year-old Kelly Rae Moats appeared in Court yesterday, and admitted the allegations of the Petition to Revoke Probation filed on July 18th. Judge William Robin Todd then resentenced Moats for Unlawful Use of Property, a class 2 Felony. The Court imposed a sentence of threeyears in the Illinois Department of Corrections, followed by a two-year period of mandatory supervised release.

The allegations were that Moats tested positive for Methamphetamine and failed to report to probation multiple times. Powless explained that when an individual fails to comply with the terms of probation, and the probationary period is revoked by the Court, the person is then resentenced. The Court may impose any sentence that is provided by statute for that particular class of crime.

The original allegations were that on the 3rd day of January, 2014, Moats committed the offense of Unlawful Use of Property, in that she knowingly used her Illinois Drivers License to purchase a substance containing pseudoephedrine, to be used to manufacture Methamphetamine.

Assisting with the investigation and the arrest of Kelly Rae Moats were officers of the Southeastern Illinois Drug Task Force.
