The 2nd of two defendants originally charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to deliver has received a deferred judgment in the case.
The charges followed a February 2011 search warrant that was executed on Hanna Rose Blumer and Devin Lee Sexton’s home on North Van Buren Avenue by members of the North Central Iowa Narcotics Task Force.
Records show that 21-year-old Devin Sexton had entered a written plea of guilty on December 19th in Cerro Gordo County District Court.
On Monday, January 30th, Judge Stephen Carroll handed down a deferred judgment to Sexton in the case. As part of the deferred judgment Sexton must complete 180 days at a residential treatment facility, and complete two years of probation with the Iowa Department of corrections.
In addition to the treatment program and probation Sexton must repay $240 dollars for indigent defense, a $125 law enforcement initiative surcharge, $100 in criminal court filing and docket fees, $80 for court reporter services, and $21 for Cerro Gordo County Sheriff services. Judge Carroll had imposed a $750 civil penalty before suspending it.
Sexton has pled not guilty in an unrelated 1st degree harassment charge from November of 2011. A pretrial conference has been set for March 13th at 9:30am in that case.
Court records show that 24-year-old Hanna Blumer received a deferred judgment in October of 2011 in the case and must complete one year of probation with the Iowa Department of Corrections.
Subject is innocent until proven guilty.
