Court Report
Judge questions validity of 14-year-old’s driver’s license
By Jason C. Mattox

A Batesville man will serve one year in jail after failing to satisfy old fines owed to the Municipal Court within the one week he was given by Judge William McKenzie.

Reginald Henderson, 112 Williams St., was told last week by McKenzie he had one week to take care of the $4,310 in fines that had been owed since July 2002.

It appeared McKenzie would entertain a notion of allowing Henderson to work off the fines in the city’s work release program used by the court as an option for offenders who cannot pay their fines. That quickly took a turn for the worse.

"Is there any reason I should allow you to be on the work program after you have failed to finish it four times before," the judge asked Henderson.

Henderson said no, and McKenzie revoked his one year suspended sentence.

"I was in a bad way when I did that," Henderson told the judge.

"Well, I am in a bad way now," McKenzie replied.

Seon Buckley, 106 Field St., Batesville, appeared in court in white face to answer charges of simple assault.

Buckley was accused of kicking his grandmother.

When asked for a plea Buckley originally said not guilty and said, "If I had kicked her, she wouldn’t be here. I’m pretty strong."

When McKenzie set a trial date on the matter for July 26, Buckley asked if he could simply pay his fine of $355.

"You can change your plea and pay your fine if that is what you want to do," the judge said.

Buckley changed his plea saying, "I don’t have time to deal with this. It’s ridiculous."

A pair of simple assault charges against Calvert Smith were dismissed after the judge ruled there was not enough evidence.

"It seems to me like you all like to fight," he said. "What’s worse is that you were fighting and nobody knows why the fight was started."

Cases Set for Trial
Iesha Griffin, 475 Greenbriar Circle, Courtland, was found guilty on charges of no seatbelt, no driver’s license and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Griffin, 14, entered a plea of not guilty saying she didn’t do any of the things she was charged with.

"You weren’t the one driving the car," McKenzie asked?

Griffin said she was driving the car at the time of the incident on June 6.

"This is not a game young lady," the judge said. "If you are not guilty, where is your driver’s license?

"You don’t have one if you are 14," he added.

Griffin was ordered to pay a fine of $630. The fine was reduced $400, when her mother produced proof of insurance.

Simple Assault
Stephanie Tribble, 202-A Lester St., will return to Municipal Court on Tuesday, July 26 for trial on a charge of simple assault.
