Henderson was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, kidnapping, petit larceny, disorderly conduct-failure to comply.

"If he does get a bond reduction we would like a restraining order from the apartments (he allegedly burglarized)," said Detective Lee Martin.

The judge granted his request and reduced his bond to $10,000 and told him to stay away from the apartments.

Kevin Montgomery, 812 W. Washington, Greenwood, was bound over to the grand jury for embezzlement.

Stephen Utz, 108 Northwells, Kosciusko, was bound over to the grand jury for prescription forgery.

Raymond Flowers, Felisha Hunt and Latonya Cole, all of 170 Greenbriar, Courtland, were transferred to the grand jury for grand larceny.

Pamela Nissen, 14 CR 528, Harmontown, had a grand larceny charge remanded to the files pending good behavior.

Carolyn Boothe, 12919 Ballentine Rd., Sardis, paid her fine of $610 in full prior to court for shoplifting.

Charles Geriner, 620 Floyd’s Island, Sardis, had old fines of $607 that have been due since October 2002. He was released from custody and given 30 days to pay the fine.

Latoya Fondren, 20 Earnestine Flowers, Sardis, had a simple assault charge dismissed after the judge heard testimonies.

Affiant Iris White spoke on behalf of her juvenile daughter and said that Fondren hit her daughter at school after a "winter ball."

Both defendant and affiant told the judge that the school had disciplined them.

No one else witnessed the incident.

"The school has already handled this and I am going to dismiss it," the judge said.

Chris Herring, 230-A Carlisle Rd., Courtland, had trespassing and disturbance of the peace charges dismissed after the affiant, Rebecca Carlisle, failed to appear to prosecute the case. The charges were filed two years ago.

Kevin Brown, 1330 Hadorn Rd., Batesville, entered a guilty plea to false information, public drunk, no driver’s license and careless driving. Louisiana police also have an investigative hold on him.

The judge sentenced him to time served for the seven days he served and sentenced him to seven more days to serve with no fine imposed.
