In a press release issued Monday, Barton County Attorney Amy Mellor said the past week was a busy one for her office:
• Among cases heard on Wednesday, Feb. 7, Iban Martinez Enriquez appeared and entered pleas to separate charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school, both felony offenses. In another case, Enriquez entered a plea to and was found guilty of battery, a misdemeanor charge. Sentencing for these cases is set for April.
• In another case, Eric Scott Peters was convicted, pursuant to his plea, of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, a drug felony. Sentencing in this case is also set for April.
• During a court hearing on Friday, Feb. 9, Rachel Quesenbury was convicted of possession of stolen property and was sentenced. The case arose out of a series of business and non-residential burglaries involving several other individuals; Quesenbury was arrested and charged when a search warrant was executed and several items of stolen property were recovered at the residence where she was staying.
• Cory Allen Little was sentenced on a charge of aggravated sexual battery and will be serving a term of confinement in a Kansas prison. Since the offense was a sexual crime, Little will be required to register as an offender for a period of 25 years following his release from confinement. He will also be subject to post-release supervision for the rest of his life. Assistant County Attorney Doug Matthews prosecuted the case on behalf of the County Attorney’s Office.
