— Judge Rebecca Gore’s sentencing docket was full of no-shows Tuesday.

Of the nine cases on the docket, five individuals were issued bench warrants.

Raymond Austin Houchin, Pryor, was charged with two counts each of burglary in the second degree and knowingly concealing stolen property.

As he failed to appear for sentencing, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. The state recommended two separate bonds to be set at $50,000 each.

Wesley Don Leach was scheduled to appear for sentencing on second- degree burglary charges. In December of 2012, he appeared in court for a motion to revoke hearing. At that time he waived his right to a hearing. Sentencing was deferred until March 12.

A bench warrant was issued and the state suggested a $50,000 bond be set for his failure to appear.

With charges of petit larceny, Darryl McCormack was scheduled to appear for sentencing. Judge Gore issued a bench warrant and the state suggested bond be set at $10,000 as it was misdemeanor charges.

A final bench warrant was issued for Brandy Morrison. She is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. Her failure to appear earned her a $10,000 bond.

The state dismissed Timothy Gorbett’s application to accelerate. Gorbet is charged with falsely impersonating another to create liability and public intoxication.

Misty Edmonson’s application to revoke was dismissed, cost to her, by the state. She is charged with driving under the influence.



Charged with larceny of automobile, driving without a valid license and failure to stop for a stop sign, Jordon Hendrickson filed an application to accelerate. The state dismissed the application with Hendrickson instructed to pay the costs.

William Ward appeared before Judge Gore on a  motion to revoke. His attorney, Jacqueline Rhodes, requested a continuance which was granted and the case was set for March 14. Ward was not in compliance with the necessary requirements to file a motion to revoke. He was charged with manufacturing controlled dangerous substance and possession of materials with intent to manufacture.

“I’m trying real hard,” he told Gore.

“Not hard enough,” she said.
