PITTSBURG — A Frontenac woman will spend three years in community corrections instead of incarcerated on two counts of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
Victoria M. Scholes, 20, was sentenced to two 22-month sentences to run consecutively by Judge A.J. Wachter Tuesday. Wachter suspended both sentences — meaning Scholes will serve consecutive 18-month probation periods with community corrections instead of going to prison.
Scholes was also sentenced to 50 hours of community service.
She is currently employed part-time and attends Pittsburg State University. Scholes’ attorney noted these factors, as well as her sobriety since the charges were filed as reasons to go the route of community corrections.
Assistant Crawford County Attorney John Gutierrez said he concurred with Scholes’ attorney, adding that Scholes had performed well in her misdemeanor probation program.
