MOUNT VERNON Knox County Prosecuting Attorney Chip McConville reported that five people were sentenced for felonies Friday by Knox County Common Pleas Judge Otho Eyster.

Jessie M. Miller, 27, of Mount Vernon, was sentenced to 114 days in the Knox County Jail for convictions on felony theft and receiving stolen property charges. In December, Miller was involved in the theft of more than $2,400 of merchandise from the Mount Vernon Wal-Mart, and also pleaded guilty to receiving a stolen check. Miller faces 11 months of suspended prison time if he violates the conditions of his community control, and he will receive credit for 14 days of jail time already served. The case was investigated by Patrolman Justin Trowbridge of the Mount Vernon Police Department.

Anthony R. Campbell, 21, of Fredericktown, was sentenced on a charge of failure of a sex offender to provide a change of address to the Knox County Sheriff.

Campbell was sentenced to 125 days in the Knox County Jail with credit for 95 days served. He was placed on community control for three years and he faces a 30 month suspended prison sentence if he violates those terms. The case was investigated by Fredericktown Police Chief Roger Brown. 

Robert M. Cain, 23, of Ashville, was sentenced to three years of community control on a charge of receiving stolen property, in addition to 30 days in the Knox County Jail. Cain entered a plea in June to the charge which involved his possession of a stolen credit card in November, 2013. He was ordered to pay $150.00 in restitution to the victim, and he faces an 11 month prison term if he violates his community control conditions. Patrolman Aaron Collins of MVPD investigated the case.

Salyer was placed on community control for three years and faces a suspended prison term of 11 months on each count. Her driver’s license was also suspended for a period of six months. The case, which involved the abuse of prescription ADHD medication, was investigated by Detective Dan Bobo of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.

Christine Wilkins, 27, of Mount Vernon, was re-sentenced based upon a revocation of her community control on a March burglary offense. Wilkins was revoked for leaving a drug treatment program that was part of the conditions of her probation.
