Guyton’s probation revoked in district court
Tanner John Guyton

On Thursday morning, 23-year-old Tanner John Guyton was back in Barton County District Court on allegations that he had violated the terms and conditions of his probation. Originally sentenced in June of 2021 for distribution or possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, Guyton was arrested several weeks later for being in possession of drugs, paraphernalia, and criminal possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. At the time of his arrest, he was driving a vehicle on a suspended license and law enforcement also discovered a substantial amount of ammunition along with the two firearms.

After hearing evidence, as well as the statements of the attorneys, District Court Judge Carey Hipp found that Guyton had violated his probation by committing a new crime. She revoked Guyton’s probation and ordered him to serve his underlying sentence of 40 months (three years and four months) in the Kansas Department of Corrections.

The State of Kansas was represented by Assistant Barton County Attorney J. Colin Reynolds. The defendant was represented by Benjamin J Fisher of Hutchinson.
