IN COURT: Herrick sentence revoked

March 29, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — A man who violated his probation had one year of his suspended sentence revoked Monday.

Bobby Herrick was in Whitley County Circuit Court. He admitted to violating his probation when he had a positive drug test. He and his attorney believed work release was the best place for him. He was denied work release though, which put him in a difficult spot.

“Bobby was in a catch-22,” said Whitley County Public Defender Brad Voelz. “He admitted to violating probation, but on the hope that he would be accepted into work release. Now he has been denied and has still admitted to the violation.”

Herrick’s probation officer, Jessica Sims, recommended to the court that one year of his sentence be revoked.
