— Matthew Dillon Hamilton was in Mayes County District Court March 12. Seated next to his girlfriend, he gave her a tearful apology.

He appeared for sentencing on charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance after former felony conviction and possession or selling of paraphernalia.

The state said he was not in compliance for his motion to revoke.

Judge Rebecca Gore confirmed that he did in fact understand all that needed to be done prior to this court hearing and the consequence of failing to do so was jail time.

Hamilton begged the judge to allow him four more hours to obtain the rest of the money owed. She refused.

“I don’t want to go to jail, ma’am,” said Hamilton.

Gore explained Hamilton received more than enough chances and time was up.

He was remanded to the custody of the sheriff’s office and was sentenced to two years in the Department of Corrections.

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 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 a controlled dangerous substance and possession of materials with intent to manufacture.

“I’m trying real hard,” he told Gore.

“Not hard enough,” she said.
